CRC Gift Cart & Book Cart

The Cole Resource Center Gift Cart is a longstanding tradition at McLean Hospital, offering attractive & affordable gift items for purchase by visitors, staff, and patients.  From jewelry with inspiring quotations to practical items like umbrellas, the Gift Cart offers something for everyone!  The CRC Gift Cart is located next to the McLean Cafeteria in the de Marneffe Building.  It is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays around lunchtimes, from 11 am – 2 pm.   The Gift Cart provides a convenient resource for the hospital community; the net proceeds from its sales support the work of the Cole Resource Center. 

 The Cole Resource Center Book Cart offers for sale a curated selection of books on a variety of current topics in mental health.  These books are selected by McLean community members (clinicians, peers, family members) as providing valuable insights into mental health care.  The CRC Book Cart is offered on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays during lunchtimes in the hallway across from the McLean Cafeteria in the de Marneffe Building.  The Book Cart is also always available for the public in the CRC offices during its open hours (Mon, Tues, Fri 8 am – 5pm and Weds, Thurs 8 am – 8 pm).  The ready availability of relevant books benefits the hospital community; the net proceeds from book sales support the work of the Cole Resource Center.

 Both the Book Cart and Gift Cart are staffed and managed by Cole Resource Center volunteers.
