Social Services Support at the Cambridge Public Library

The Cambridge Public Library is dedicated to a Cambridge where everyone has equitable opportunities to access resources and support. The Library Social Work Team is available to meet with you on Zoom, by phone or in-person appointments at any of our 7 library locations. Our team can assist with:

  • Referrals to area agencies
  • Completing applications
  • Resource navigation
  • Mental health/substance misuse linkage and referral

When you’re overwhelmed, it can be hard to know where to start. Sign up to connect with a member of the Library Social Work team to get ideas of next steps and find out what resources and support are available to you in the community.

Social work appointments are not currently available. Please check back for more information.
