Free Summer Activities at the University Library

21st July 2016

The Cambridge University Library is celebrating our 600th birthday this year with a major exhibition and ahost of activities for all the family over the summer holidays.

Discover our free exhibition featuring Newton, Darwin, Shakespeare and many of the great thinkers of the past and present. The display includes many of the Library’s most beautiful treasures, from a 4000-year old clay tablet to stunning 3D anatomical drawings.

We have exciting new trails for the whole family, including an I spy activity for younger children and a doodle trail for all ages. There is also an interactive iPad app to explore.

Alongside the exhibition we are running a programme of drop-in and bookable family events as part of  Summer at the Museums including story-telling, ‘How big is your Brain?’, and ‘Discovering Darwin’.
