Friends of Cambridge University Library


A new and exciting, exclusive tour is on offer for Friends of Cambridge University Library. 

You are invited to join the Friends exclusive tour of the new Library Storage Facility, Ely. The purpose-built store, which opened in Summer 2018, can hold up to 106km of materials - the distance between Cambridge and Houses of Parliament. This means that up to around 4 millions books will be kept in the store, all of which will be discoverable on iDiscover and requested for reference in the University Library.

There will be tours at 10.00-11.00am and at 2.00-3.00pm. Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. If you would like to join the tour, registration is essential. No drop-ins on the day.  

To register and receive further information, please email indicating the tour time you would like to join. The tours will start at the Library Storage Facility in Ely, and there is car parking available on site.
