The library, based at Brampton Community Centre, opened on June 5 and will be managed and run by volunteers three days a week – with the support of Cambridgeshire County Council.

Councillor Mathew Shuter, chairman of the highways and community infrastructure committee, said: “The county council is very pleased to have worked closely with the community to help them realise their ambition for a library in Brampton, and are delighted to see access to library services extended in this way.”

Before the grand opening, volunteers worked with staff from Huntingdon library to prepare for the launch and more volunteers are expected to be trained in the future.

The mission to open the library was led by Brampton residents in a bid to make it easier for people in the village to borrow books.
