We are a non-profit, independent, volunteer community library in rural New Brunswick (since 2008). The heritage building (1854-58) is owned by the village of Arcadia, which was formed through the 2023 New Brunswick local governance reforms. 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 recently revised 'Genealogy and Local History' section; sit in on a book club meeting or a talking circle; enjoy Coffee and Cards day; see our huge collection of quilting/craft books; read a newspaper or magazine; get tourism brochures; or use a computer or Wi-Fi make photo copies (small fee) or send a fax. 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 donated books for a free library service for area residents;
- encourage in children and their parents an ongoing love of reading and learning;
- encourage seniors to participate in and volunteer for various activities related to reading and enrichment;
- serve and be responsive to the needs of the community by partnering with other community organizations and be an activity centre for the area; and
- serve the local area and the Province by acting as a Visitor Information Centre.
The mission statement will be reviewed periodically by the Library Committee. (revised Sept. 8, 2022)
We welcome anyone who is willing to volunteer 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/passions). We get to do what we love and serve our community at the same time! Win/Win! Please join the team!
