Clemens Mill Library

Clemens Mill is a branch of Idea Exchange (Cambridge Public Libraries & Cambridge Art Galleries). A unique partnership and shared facility with St Benedict, it is both a school library and public library. Idea Exchange provides services and materials for students, teachers, and the larger community. Not only do we support classroom and student learning, but we also inspire discovery, a love of reading, and a welcoming space where teens can connect with each other and their neighbours.
