Our Library Information Points

If you’re affected by cancer you may want to know there’s somewhere you can go to find answers. Somewhere where someone can help you find answers to your questions, whatever they may be.

The Macmillan information points across Lanarkshire can help you find information you need on living with all aspects of cancer as well as signposting you to the nearest Macmillan drop in centre.

You can find them at:

Biggar Library
