*Additional Information* – Reduced opening hours are in place
We are preparing to welcome back residents for managed browsing from 12 April. You will be able to browse the shelves and select your own books.
To ensure everyone can make use of the libraries safely:
one-way systems will be in place
customers asked to wear masks (unless exempt)
we will ask you to sanitise their hands when you enter the library
a friendly face will be on the door of each library to explain how managed browsing works and answer any questions
social distancing will be in place
you will be able to use self-service technology to check your books out
returned books will also be quarantined to minimise the risk of Covid infection
Safety is our priority so we have put measures in place to make sure that people feel confident and secure in using our library services. We have introduced a maximum capacity for each building so you may have to queue at busy times, and for the time being, customers won’t be able to sit or study while visiting the library.
We are also asking people to use the NHS track and trace app when they enter the building, or if they don’t have a smartphone, we will take their details for the same purpose.

There is something for everyone at Cambridgeshire Libraries!
We offer free WiFi, computer (and internet) access, affordable and modern meeting rooms, local business information, newspapers, DVDs, audiobooks, music scores and books.
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.
Anyone living, working or studying in Cambridgeshire or neighbouring counties, or visiting is welcome to join our library service free of charge.
Registration Services are located in Huntingdon Library – this is an appointment only service.
