Cambridge Library is celebrating two decades at 23 Wilson Street with a week of fun activities.
Everyone is invited to join in the festivities, which include behind the scene tours, craft activities, competitions, cake and a big birthday bash on Friday 20 July.
Community facilities manager Bruce Airey said the celebrations are a way to give back to the community who have supported the library throughout the years.
“We’ve seen a lot of changes in our Library since it moved to Wilson Street in 1998. We’ve progressed from paper library cards to an online system, added eBooks, audiobooks and interactive databases to our services. We’re grateful to our local users who continue to support our libraries and their services.”
Originally established in 1872, the Cambridge Library was housed at Cambridge Primary School, Cambridge Town Hall and later on Victoria Street before moving to its current site.
“When it first opened there were only 30 members and a couple of hundred titles, now we have over 100,000 visitors and check out over 296,000 books each year in Cambridge alone.”
Airey invites the community to join in the festivities next week and celebrate this milestone.
