Ambleside Local Link, Children's Centre and Community Development Centre

Revised Cumbria Library services

Welcome back to Cumbria Libraries for browsing, borrowing and PC access. 

In line with government guidelines you will need to follow social distancing guidelines, and a number of restrictions will apply, but a warm welcome awaits and you can visit this library to join Cumbria Libraries.

We are still offering a Select and Collect service as well as our existing home delivery service.

Not all of our usual activities are available, and there won't be in-person groups or sessions, but there are still plenty of resources available for you to enjoy.  Live streaming of children's events are posted on each Library's Facebook page, as well as a range of book reviews and activity suggestions.  Our online services include free e-books and e-magazines.
