Central Library Cambridge – Important Information
The library is opened on the following days:
Mondays 10am – 2pm
Wednesdays 10am – 2pm
Fridays 10am – 2pm
Saturdays 10am – 2pm
The services offered are:
– Returning books
– Collecting books reserved online (via a reservation or our Select & Collect service)
– Use of computers (not more than one 45-minutes session per day; you will be asked to pre-book a computer on the website, by phone or in person at the library – we encourage users to reserve their books and computers from home as much as possible)
– Printing and photocopying
Unfortunately at this stage no browsing is allowed.
To pay for printing and photocopying customers will have to pay by card (or cash if they have the exact change). Alternatively we can add a charge on their Spydus account (not more than £10).
As for our Select & Collect service, it is meant to be an alternative to reserving specific books and as a way to make up for the lack of browsing. Customers can fill out a form at the following link to request a selection of books based on their preferences: https://cambridgeshire-self.achieveservice.com/service/Select_and_Collect
Customers will have to enter their personal details (including their library card number), preferred method of contact, desired pickup location, how many books they want, which genre and any other characteristics (Large Print, audiobooks, etc.) and we will choose a selection of books for them based on their request and their reading history.
