Ten libraries across Cambridgeshire including ones in March, Chatteris, Wisbech, Littleport and Soham are to benefit from a share of a £93,271 grant.
The funding from Arts Council England is being given to run a programme of arts activities and events based around performances, workshops and book festivals.
The programme, which is called ‘The Library Presents… Arts Alive’, will be curated by Library Friends groups and activities will start in October 2017.
A spokesman said: “It is a fantastic opportunity for everyone in the community to be involved, develop an interest in film, creative writing, see live performances and build strong local engagement using the library as an arts space within the community.
“It will also enable the friends groups and library staff to work with high quality professional artists and arts organisations to deliver an adventurous programme.”
