New Temporary Home For Sawston Library Set To Open


Work to install a new temporary building is now complete and Sawston Library will re-open to the public on Wednesday 6 March.

From 6 March some changes to the library opening hours will also come into effect. This follows feedback from customers and analysis of library use last year which showed where hours could be tweaked to better suit demand.

Sawston customers will see the library open for an extra hour on a Monday and a Tuesday, both of which have proved busy days. On a Wednesday and Friday the library will close between 1-2pm but otherwise opening hours will stay the same.

New opening hours

  • Monday 2 - 6pm 
  • Tuesday  3 - 7pm 
  • Wednesday 10am - 1pm/ 2 - 5pm 
  • Thursday Closed 
  • Friday 10am -  1pm/ 2 - 5pm 
  • Saturday 10am - 1pm 

Cambridgeshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Learning, Cllr David Harty said "The new temporary building is able to provide as much space as the original building and house just as many books. We're sure that many Sawston residents will come along and visit their local library."

There will be an official launch of the new temporary building on Saturday 16 March.
