We are a non-profit, independent, volunteer community library in rural New Brunswick. The heritage building is owned by the Village of Cambridge-Narrows. We are also a Province of New Brunswick Visitor Information Center. Visit your Library regularly and meet up with your friends and neighbours. Check out the book collection for children, teens and adults; search through the local history material; sit in on a book club meeting or a talking circle; take part in a craft workshop; see our huge collection of quilting/craft books; read a newspaper or magazine; visit and have a coffee; take tourism brochures for yourself and guests from away; or use a computer. There are used books for sale in the front lobby and back room (freewill offering appreciated). Browse this website and learn about the programs and services that we have to offer. Take out 4 books (or magazines) at a time for 3 weeks or renew as needed. Memberships are free. We hope to see you soon.
The mission of The Cambridge Narrows Regional Library is to collect and organize books donated for a library service to the area. Materials and services will be provided free to area residents of all ages for personal enrichment, enjoyment, and educational needs (...for reading, learning and cultural enrichment).
The library has a special mission, to young children and their parents to encourage an ongoing interest in the love/joy of reading and power of learning (...to support a lifelong enjoyment of reading and learning). The senior population in the community will be encouraged to participate in and volunteer for various activities related to reading and enrichment. The Library aims most of all to serve and be responsive to the needs of the community by partnering with other community organizations and becoming a learning and activity center for the area.
The mission statement will be reviewed periodically by the Library Committee.
We welcome anyone who is willing to volunteer 2 to 3 hours a month. Volunteering is a great way to make friends and become a part of the community. Margaret Mead said, "The ideal culture is one that finds a place for every human gift." That describes the culture of our library. Each volunteer is encouraged to use their gifts (talents/interests). We get to do what we love and serve our community at the same time!
