Cumbria Library Headquarters

Borrowing books and multimedia, accessing information and lifelong learning, or delving into the rich cultural and historical heritage of Cumbria - it's all part of our extensive Library and Archive Service.

There are 48 libraries throughout the County plus a fleet of mobile libraries. You can also visit the library on-line to find out what's in stock, to request items to borrow or to renew titles that you already have out on loan. Our Library Service isn't just about books - if you'd rather go more hi-tech, you can book a slot on one of our PCs to surf the internet, or borrow computer games, DVDs, videos, talking books and CDs through your local library.

Or alternatively if you are interested in tracing your family tree or the history of your home or community why not visit Cumbria County Council's Archive Website?
