More workshops on the future for libraries in Cambridgeshire

We have recently started an informal discussion with library users and stakeholders on the future for libraries in Cambridgeshire through a series of workshops.   Read more.......



The first round of events is drawing to a close but the conversation continues over the coming weeks with more workshop dates and venues in September/October.

The county is changing and the way people use our services is changing. We want to take this opportunity to ensure our services are fit for the future and meet the needs of the community. We would like to hear your ideas and suggestions on how to sustain, improve and develop your libraries and the services they offer. We’ll use this discussion to inform our work over the coming months to define how libraries can achieve long-term sustainability and continue to thrive.

This new set of workshops is intended to offer as many opportunities to as many people as possible to get involved and will follow the same format as the August events.  

Please join us on any of the following dates:

  • Monday 25th September 10.00 – 12:30 The Eastrea Centre, 2 Roman Gardens (Coates Road), Eastrea, Whittlesey PE7 2BA
  • Tuesday 26th September 18:30 – 21:00 St Andrew's Centre, School Hill, Histon CB24 9JE
  • Wednesday 27th September 13:30 – 16:00 The Priory Centre, Priory Lane, St Neots PE19 2BH
  • Thursday 28th September 12:30 - 15:00 The Ellesmere Centre, Ley Road, Stetchworth, Newmarket, CB8 9TS
  • Monday 2nd October 18:30 – 21:00 Cambridge Central Library, 7 Lion Yard, Cambridge CB2 3QD
  • Tuesday 3rd October 13:00 – 15:30 The Hub Meeting Room, High St, Cambourne CB23 6GW

If you’ve already joined us and given you views at one of the August events, there is no need for you to attend another one. But you are of course welcome to if you wish to take the conversation further with us. We will also start to summarise the themes from our early discussions on our website and this will enable the conversations to develop over time.

Please feel free to pass this invitation to other people who would be interested in attending any of the sessions.

If you are unable to attend but would like to have your say, you can email us any questions or comments at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Please also get in touch if you would like to invite us to meet with a particular group.
