The Hambleton Project Library:
An Organization Searching for Empowerment and Answers
Keywords:community-based library, lesbians, cancer, health advocacy
This paper describes the books selected for inclusion in the Hambleton Project Library, a group that strived to help lesbians dealing with cancer. Analysis focuses on how creating the library was one part of the group’s narrative and community focused activities. Volunteers brought passion, energy, and belief in the importance of improving the patient experience to everything they did, all of the many activities. In the end, community run groups should fully consider the sustainability of the resources they create.
