Bassingbourn Community Library and Café

Back to Activities

Bassingbourn Community Library is supported by Cambridgeshire Libraries but is staffed and managed by volunteers. Pop in to borrow books, have a drink in the café or why not become a volunteer?

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • you can access a range of services from Cambridgeshire Libraries;
  • everyone of all ages from the local community is warmly welcomed, combatting social isolation;
  • there are many ways to connect with others and keep busy – including Lego Club, craft activities, a jigsaw puzzle library and a warm and welcoming café.

“You always have some lovely activities…thank you!”

What to expect

Bassingbourn Community Library is free to come in and welcomes everyone, whether you want to borrow a book, play with the toys or just sit and chat.

Though run by volunteers, the library is part of Cambridgeshire Libraries and offers free library membership which gives you the opportunity to borrow and request books from the Cambridgeshire Libraries collection and use online services including e-books and audio books.

There is a small café offering drinks and snacks.
