Our city'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 items such as DVDs. We also offer 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. We also offer the open+ library system, allowing members to access any of the libraries outside of staffed hours. To sign up as a 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.
