It is one of the busiest branch libraries in the county and acts as a mini hub library – alongside Bar Hill – for the cluster of South Cambs/North Libraries. The library has a thriving community behind it including a passionate friends group which has successfully raised funds for the library in previous years.

The building, which closed in May 2020, was reopened on Thursday, January 20, after being enhanced by the county council to provide a more modern library experience. The council has invested £112,000 into furniture and facilities to complement the new School Hill development.

Cllr Tom Sanderson, chair of Cambridgeshire County Council’s communities, social mobility and inclusion committee, said: “The new Histon library building is a modern representation of the library service the county wants to offer.”
