The Patient/Family section offers a children’s grief collection, donated by the local chapter of The Compassionate Friends support group. These books help children understand and cope with death or loss.
The library and its staff appreciate all the support it receives. If you have publications you are no longer using, please know that we gladly accept donations of recent journals and books.
The Virginia Funkhouser Health Sciences Library is conveniently located on the first floor of the hospital between the main lobby and the Hahn Cancer Center.
