All Saints Cathedral is home to one of the largest lending libraries of English language books in Cairo.

The annual subscription is 4o Egyptian pounds for a family (to borrow up to six books at a time) and 20 Egyptian pounds for an individual (to borrow up to two books). Books can be returned even during closed hours as there is a drop box right outside the library. The library welcomes volunteers and donations of books.

The library is located  in the office building opposite the Cathedral on the 1st floor.
