Welcome to the website of the Friends of Milton Road Library
We are a group who support the Milton Road Library in Cambridge and want to ensure we retain it as a local library but also develops as a community resource.

New Plans for Library & Community Hub
The plans for developing our library into a community hub and flats above have been agreed by the City Council’s Planning Committee. We are now in discussion with the County Council about detail of the design, and also about the future management of the facility. Arrangements for the provision of library services during the development phase are being discussed as well and we hope to be able to let you know more about all this before long.
Meanwhile we plan to hold an 80th anniversary celebration in June. The present building was opened in 1937 and we want to mark this with a day of celebration on Saturday 24th June, a day which will form part of this year’s Chesterton Festival week – 17th to 24th June
We have some thoughts for the anniversary celebration but would like to hear your ideas. Next Saturday, 8th April we invite you to a tea and chat event at the library at 3.15. Please come along with ideas for the celebration and any offers of help to run the day. We want there to be something for all ages so please think widely.
