Bank holiday closures

All libraries are closed on bank holidays, and will be closed on Monday 29 May.

Cherry Hinton Library closure

Cherry Hinton Library closed temporarily from Saturday 29 April to allow works to begin on site for the Cherry Hinton Community Hub. All library items still on loan on this date were automatically renewed, and can be returned to any of our libraries.  

There will be a temporary mobile library service operating at the following times:

  • 1st Saturday of the Month 9am-1pm, outside Cherry Hinton C of E Primary School
  • Saturday 8th of July 9am-1pm, for the start of the Summer Reading Challenge, outside Cherry Hinton C of E Primary School

The nearest static libraries are Rock Road Library and Barnwell Road Library. There is also a Community Managed Library at Fulbourn.

We will also soon be launching enhanced Open Plus library provision at the nearby Rock Road library.

Find the locations and opening times of all city libraries online (Arbury Court, Milton Road, Cambridge Central, Barnwell Road, Rock Road and Clay Farm).

You can manage your account online.

There are more details of the new community hub on the Cambridge City Council website.
