Access Our Libraries
We have a full-time professional medical librarian on staff, Eileen Coan, who divides her time between our east and west libraries. These are lending libraries, where you can borrow books, CD's and DVD's, for up to six months. We have a wall of free pamphlets for local and national organizations serving those touched by cancer. Our librarian is glad to meet with you, talk on the phone or email to help you understand your pathology reports, blood work, scans, etc. She can help you find clinical trials and make sense of alternative medicine options.

We are delighted to be able offer a link to the most popular CD's by Belleruth Naparstek, of Health Journeys. Ms. Naparstek has been actively involved with The Gathering Place since before we opened our doors, generously donating many CD's over the years, speaking to our participants, and now sharing her online resources: Health Journeys Cancer and Caregiver Guided Imagery
