Begins April 1st

The Valente Branch Library is located in an area between Lechmere and Inman Square, which receives many of Cambridge's new immigrants. The branch plays host to a community that includes large populations from the Caribbean and the Portuguese speaking countries of Cape Verde, Portugal and Brazil. Check out the calendar of events for monthly programming information.

In addition to our vast assortment of English Language materials, the library is the proud home of the Manuel Rogers, Sr. Center for Portuguese Culture (The Rogers Collection). It is a collection of Portuguese language books, DVDs, and CDs that serves the needs of our Portuguese speaking community.
