Redruth Library & Information Service

Poster setting out what to expect at Redruth Library during the pandemic


Redruth Library and Information Service's management transferred to Redruth Town Council back in 2018 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 are still members of the Cornwall Library and Information Service and are able to borrow from Cornwall County's wide stock of books, CD’s and DVD’s, as well as having access to online newspapers, e-magazines, eBooks and computers.

Following the library's transfer of management, Redruth Library and Information Service, Redruth Town Council and the Tourist and Information Service have all relocated to Redruth Civic Centre.

Our revised address is as follows:
Redruth Town Council, Library & Information Service, Redruth Civic Centre, Alma Place, Redruth, Cornwall TR15 2AT.

Here are our current opening hours for Click and Collect as of  Monday 12th April 2021.   Whilst it is predominately a click and collect service we are now offering limited browsing, an Information Service, and access to 2 public network computers.   Please use the 'Cornwall Libraries' web-page to browse and order your books:

Please be advised that during the pandemic we may have to change our offer or operating hours at short notice, and the details will be updated on this page as soon as known.   We will aim to provide the best service possible as the guidelines in force allow.   At present we are able to offer the following:

  • Recycling Containment – we will have the full set of domestic recycling containers. There will be limited seagull sack availability.

  • Junior Book Bundles – please email the Redruth Library Inbox if you would like to be included in our new Junior Book Bundle scheme. We will pick a selection of    picture books, early readers or junior fiction for you on a weekly basis ready for you to collect.

  • Home Library Service – we have our two volunteers back with us and the RVS Housebound Service is back in action! If you are still shielding or are unable to access the library, please contact us so that we can pop you on our home delivery list.
