Redruth Library & Information Service

Redruth Town Council are delighted to announce that the management of Redruth Library and Information Service has transferred to the Town Council as part of Cornwall Council’s Devolution Programme.  The devolution programme is helping councils and communities take over local ownership, management and control of services. Cornwall Council continues to support the Town Council to deliver the local service. Redruth Library and Information Service customers will still be members of the Cornwall Library and Information Service and will be able to borrow from the Cornwall-wide stock of books, CD’s and DVD’s, as well as having access to online newspapers, e-magazines, eBooks and computers.   Redruth Town Council will retain the same opening hours as Cornwall Council did, but longer term we aim to be more accessible by increasing the opening times.
