Looking for a peaceful spot to read or study?  

Pembroke College Library is ideal. Our well-stocked Library hosts excellent collections in all the main teaching subjects.

We buy books so you don’t have to.

We know that sometimes course books can be hard to track down and pricey to buy. That’s why we order books if you need them, and we encourage students to suggest titles for us to buy. There is a link on the Library webpage.

Students are entitled to a book grant. Contact the Tutorial Department for details.

Our Library, along with other undergraduate College Libraries, stocks copies of the books that lecturers and supervisors often recommend. It’s one of the great things about Cambridge. You won’t just find what you need in the University and Departmental Libraries, but often in your own College Library too.

The Library has a lift for disabled access. It is open every day from 8 am till 12 midnight.
