Discussion group laughing together in a library



There are 15 public libraries in Northumberland County.

  • These are quiet, public places where you can go to study, read or do research.
  • You can also take out books or movies on loan once you get a library card.

Library cards are free. You just need to have identification which shows that you live in that municipality.

  • There are often special community programs or events for adults and children.
  • Some libraries, like the Cobourg Public Library, have books and DVDs in many different languages that you can borrow for free.
  • Some also have books, CDs, DVDs and electronic databases to help you learn English, prepare for tests such as TOEFL and IELTS and Canadian citizenship tests.
  • Public libraries also have lots of materials and resources to help you upgrade your Math, Science and relevant workplace skills. They provide information to help you with your career and job search.
  • Library staff are trained to help you locate government and social service information on the internet.
  • All public libraries have computer terminals available for the public to use.
