Mobile Library Service

We have received the following update from Histon & Impington Library Friends:

Histon Library is currently closed for refurbishment and will open again in 2021. In the meantime, we’re delighted to confirm that a temporary mobile library will visit Histon regularly, starting on Monday 28th September. The mobile library will be parked outside Histon Baptist Church in Station Road, Histon, Cambridge CB24 9LN  and will visit on Mondays from 10am-2pm and Thursdays from 2-6pm.  Please note that access to the mobile library will be limited, to ensure that everyone is kept safe, but you will be able to return items and also collect books which you’ve ordered in advance.

You can pre-order books to collect using our usual reservation service at When you place your order, please choose Histon as the library pick up point. Reservations are currently free of charge. We also have a new Select and Collect service, which allows you to request a collection of books based on your reading preferences. The titles will then be selected for you by library staff. Simply visit: 

Please order your books as far in advance as possible to ensure that the selection is ready and issued for you to collect (ideally a week in advance, but we will do our best with forms received after this).

Reservations can also be placed by calling 0345 045 5225. If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact the team by emailing
