Cambridge-Narrows Regional Library
welcomes you to our website
The Cambridge-Narrows Regional Library is an independent library that is run by a group of wonderful local volunteers. Through federal and provincial government grants, we have been able to hire summer students for the months of July and August each year. We are very pleased to welcome three students: Jessica Dugas will be back again this summer; and Holly Urquhart and Austin Orchard-Belyea will be working here for the first time. The building is owned and operated by the Village of Cambridge-Narrows. We purchase supplies and new books with the money made at our book sales and from donations. The annual Christmas Concert is our main fund-raiser. We also have a book sale and a community breakfast at the Municipal Building on Community Day, July 2, 2016. Please check updates under 'Events'.
The building first began to contribute to the social history of the village when it was built in the 1860's. Today it is still the heart-beat of our community. It is also used as a Visitor Information Centre for this area. Please browse through our website and learn about our programs, volunteers, book club and special events. You can also learn about the history of the library and the building itself.

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 3 to 4 hours a month.

Along with NB Power, we are pleased to offer appliance energy meters that measure how much energy your appliances use over a period of time, thus helping you identify ways to reduce energy charges.
These meters may be signed out free of charge by Library members the same as you would borrow a book.
