Milton Road Library, Cambridge

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, free WiFi and computer access, CDs and music scores. Online there is free access to e-books and e-audiobooks, access to many newspapers plus an array of free e-magazines to download and read at your leisure. You can use the library app to access to your account, request and renew books.

Cambridgeshire Library’s monthly e-newsletter is a must for finding out what’s going on in a library near you. You will be amazed at the breadth and depth of the events happening in our libraries. Sign up for the library e-Newsletter to make sure you don't miss special promotions and events in your library.

If you find you cannot get to your library due to mobility difficulties, illness (short of long term) or through unpaid caring responsibilities you may be eligible for the Home Library Service. We find a volunteer to bring you reading materials, and have a chat every month.

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

We welcome volunteers in a variety of roles so please contact us if you are interested in getting involved and supporting a library. We have a variety of volunteering opportunities for young people (13+) – Summer Reading Challenge, book clubs, homework help and the Duke of Edinburgh scheme.

There are many adult volunteering opportunities ranging from helping to keep your library spick and span (shelving books, helping with displays etc.,) to becoming a digital buddy, helping with social media, joining the Read A Little Aloud groups (storytime for adults) through to supporting the arts and culture in your library with The Library Presents programme.

Donations and sponsorship are always welcome and many libraries have local Friends Groups.
