Linkinhorne Parish Hall to host a micro library service

Linkinhorne Parish Hall will be hosting a new micro library in Upton Cross from Monday 23 July.

The new micro library remains part of Cornwall’s library service, so customers will be able to keep their existing library cards and will be able to visit, borrow and order books online from other libraries in Cornwall.

The mobile library will continue to visit Upton Cross throughout August and from 23 July the new micro-library will open.

The micro library will offer approximately 800 books which will include fiction, non-fiction and junior books. The library stock will be managed by a Community Library and Information Assistant who will visit each month to check and exchange the stock and deliver requested books.

The library will provide a free ‘click and collect’ service so that visitors can access the library catalogue, reserve books online and arrange to collect in Upton Cross.

Brian Norris, Chairman of the Linkinhorne Parish Hall Committee thanked all those who have supported the move to take over the running of the new library.

He said; “We intend to provide a service that the community, both long-established and newcomers, want and deserve.”

Edwina Hannaford, Cornwall Council Cabinet portfolio holder for Neighbourhoods, said: “The Linkinhorne Parish Hall Committee has shown great dedication in developing a sustainable, community-led plan for this micro-library in Upton Cross.”

“This is a fantastic example of how, by working together with communities and other partners, we can find innovative ways to deliver the service our communities need.”
