New Breast Cancer Titles

Pink Ribbon

The issue of breast cancer is painfully close to many people's hearts. Each year, 182,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 43,300 die. And while the numbers of occurrence among men is much lower, it remains a threat to all of us.  Almost everyone knows someone whose life has been affected by a breast cancer diagnosis or that of a loved one.

On January 17, 2005, the Pamunkey Regional Library benefited from a generous gift from the Central Virginia Chapter of the
Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation.  With this gift, we were able to purchase current titles to revitalize and renew our collection of books on breast cancer and provide up-to-date information and hope to cancer survivors and their loved ones.

"One of the main objectives for the VBCF is Education," says Barbara Geisler of the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation.  "Our chapter hopes by donating these funds for books, your library will be a resource for the many persons affected by breast cancer in the many communities you serve.  We hope the materials you purchase through our chapter will benefit many people.  Fortunately, medicine is changing constantly, but keeping up with the new resources and materials is challenging." 

Each of our branch libraries will currently display our new additions, as well as informational brochures, flyers, and pink ribbons, to remind us and others to take charge of our health and that of our loved ones.  Please stop by your local branch library to see what they have to offer you.

Below are some photos taken recently of our new titles and materials, our helpful staff, and our generous donors. Click on the thumbnails to see the full-size picture.
