  • We stayed warm during the wintry NE months by sitting in the library. Nice! To distinguish yourself from the homeless, pick up a book or magazine and look busy.  more »
  • Impressive building. Very good combination of modern and classic. Really interesting to meet and visit.

  • For tourists, the bib is probably not as exciting, but if you live in Cambridge, you should be sure a free (!) Get membership of the library. Especially if you have children. On the top floor there is an area just for children, which the other pane sound-proofed separated from is - super thought out. Throughout the House, there are free (!) Wi-Fi, above of course extra toilets etc. So great for very hot days (AC :)!) or rainy days.) Also the small neighbourhood libraries are recommended.

  • Fantastic selection of books and film. Excellent, friendly staff, and well-designed space.
  • Great book selection and a beautiful space. Also, there is a parking garage under the library.
  • Excellent for books and can reserve study rooms for groups; however, WiFi here is completely unusable. On speed test, couldn't even get to 0.5 mbps download speed. Would highly recommend if you want a sunny place to read a book or two, but don't bother bringing a laptop if you need to get any work done that requires an Internet connection.
  • A wonderful spot for kids and adults alike with an amazing program each day for kids. Thank you for making this possible.
  • A good selection through the Minuteman network. This library has a cool and convenient self-checkout machine which registers all your books after you place them on top of an electronic pad. Staff are friendly and competent.

Where to stay in Cambridge

As the home of two renowned universities, Cambridge caters mainly to the families of current or prospective students. You can stay near the university campuses by booking your room at a student-oriented bed and breakfast or guesthouse, which offer simple, comfortable lodging for a fraction of the price charged by the big chains. If you don't mind paying more and wish to stay near the city's major cultural attractions, consider a hotel just across the Charles River from downtown Boston.
