Description

Newnham College Library is one of the best-stocked undergraduate college libraries in Cambridge, with a collection of some 90,000 volumes, including approximately 6,000 rare books. The collection is kept as relevant, up-to-date and useful as possible by the annual purchase of more than 1,000 new titles to support undergraduate study in all subjects.

The library is divided into two sections, the original Victorian Yates Thompson library designed by Basil Champneys and the award-winning new Horner Markwick extension.
