The Library

Welcome to Pembroke College Library. Housed in a beautiful Victorian building, we are a busy academic Library at the heart of the College. We have over 42,000 books on our open shelves and provide tranquil study space for all members of the College. The Library is run by a dedicated team of professional librarians and provides books for all subjects taught in Pembroke. We also hold over 30,000 rare books and other Special Collections.

Find us on Facebook to see the latest from the Library.
