People in Cleator Moor will now be able access a range of support and information about dealing with cancer at their local library.
Cleator Moor Library has been included in the Macmillan Cancer Information Library Project, making it the 19th library across Cumbria to join the scheme.
The project aims to make information about cancer more widely available to the public in a non-medical setting, and the council is pleased it has been extended.
“Since this service was launched six years ago around 4,000 books have been borrowed to help people deal with cancer. It’s a service that is appreciated greatly by people who use it and I’m thrilled to hear that another library has taken on this project.”
