About this organisation

There is something for everyone at Cambridgeshire Libraries

Our 42 libraries and Library Access Points and (over 400) Mobile Library stops across the county offer books, newspapers, magazines, DVDs, Blu-Rays, free WiFi and computer access, CDs, audiobooks, home energy meters and music scores. Our online library service provides free of charge access to the e-book and e-audio book download service and our excellent online reference databases. Make sure you sign up for our email alerts to notify you of requested books ready to collect and any forthcoming overdue loans.

Remember, we have resources you won't find anywhere else such as large print books and audio books for people with a visual impairment, and collections of books in other languages. Plus if you have difficulty visiting a library please ask about the Library at Home Service.

Anyone living, working or studying in Cambridgeshire or neighbouring counties, or visiting is welcome to join our library service free of charge.
