Things to do at Peterborough Central Library
Vivacity’s 11 libraries allow people who live and work in Peterborough to borrow books and use the internet for free as well as to hire other items such as CDs and DVDs. Vivacity also offers a wide number of e-books and audiobooks online - so many that our digital items could be considered the 4th largest library in the city. Vivacity also offers the open+ library system, allowing members to access any of the libraries outside of staffed hours. To sign up as a Vivacity library member, head to vivacity.org/jointhelibrary or pop in and ask a staff member.
Peterborough Central Library and Archives can be found on Broadway in the City Centre, near the City Market.
