More than 125 University of Oklahoma students, faculty and staff members and other volunteers, some from the Benham Group, participated in selecting books for the Peggy and Charles Stephenson Cancer Center.
They were at the Friends of the Metropolitan Library System pre-sale event at the Expo Hall at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds. The 5000 books will be available to patients and families at the Cancer Center when it opens this summer at the OU Health Sciences Center. The 50-cent soft cover and $1. hardbacks were purchased with Cancer Center funds.
The comfortable and healing environment at the Cancer Center will also feature a café, original works of art, rocking chairs, game rooms, massage therapy and a healing garden.
