Education and Resource Library

We want to provide information that helps you learn more about cancer and the cancer experience. Our on-site Education and Resource Library offers trusted, easy-to-understand information that removes the mystery from life with cancer and can help you and your loved ones feel better about the choices you make in managing your cancer care. Our Library offers books and materials to review in our comfortable facility or check-out and take home. All Frankly speaking About Cancer materials are available at no cost.

Onsite Education and Resource Library

A variety of cancer-specific resources are available from our onsite Education and Resource Library. Our materials are reviewed by medical experts including oncologists, nurses, social workers, patient advocacy groups and even patients and caregivers. In our books you will see pictures and read quotes from real people who have experience with cancer.

The materials, some of which are available in Spanish, cover a wide range of topics. The children’s books include age-appropriate material to help kids understand cancer, clarify misconceptions or preconceived ideas that may be producing unnecessary fear or anxiety, and help them realize they’re not alone. Please visit us at our Old Henderson Road facility to browse and take home helpful materials. Click here for directions.

All children’s books and resources are provided through support from the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation, the John F. Grothaus Memorial Fund and Bob Evans Farms.
