Macmillan Library Project

Are you living with cancer? Or do you know someone who has been recently diagnosed? Then we are here to help. Macmillan Cancer Support now has a permanent information area at Southampton Central Library. Library staff are happy to help you find the information you want. You will also find a computer available for confidential research about cancer and library staff can help you to use this if necessary.
