Joint Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Suffolk Shared Partnership in the East (SPINE) catalogue
Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Suffolk Libraries provide a shared catalogue, offering a greater choice to customers. Those customers with a Cambridgeshire Libraries card can now borrow items from any library in Peterborough and Suffolk for free and return library loans to any Cambridgeshire, Peterborough or Suffolk library.
Cambridgeshire Libraries members can search and reserve items from Peterborough and Suffolk Libraries. A £2 charge will apply to reservations, to cover the cost of transporting the item to the selected library.
Drop boxes for out-of-hours returns are available at:
- Bar Hill Library (only during the Post Office opening hours)
- Cambourne Library
- Chatteris Library
- Ely Library
- Ramsey Library
Most items are available to borrow free of charge. Charges and regulations may apply to some audio-visual, inter-library loans, music score sets, and group loans items. Items may also be requested.
