Mobile Library service
The mobile library provides a library service to rural areas in Cornwall where there is no static library or micro library.
There is a selection of books on many subjects, novels, large print books, books for children and talking books. Other materials, such as DVDs, music CDs and music scores can be borrowed on request. The stock is updated and exchanged regularly and customers can request books for free from the online library catalogue or for a small charge if placed by a Library Assistant.
Roche Micro Library (Rest And Play Cafe) The Old Church Hall, Fore Street, Roche, PL26 8EP will open on Friday 18th September 10am-12noon and Monday 20th September 2pm-4pm (this is a temporary measure) whilst we are finalising an alternative venue to the Rest and Play café.

Where's my nearest library?
Our Home Library Service is for anyone who is unable to use the library because they have a disability, long-term illness or caring responsibilities which make it difficult for them to get out. Home Library Service volunteers bring books and other materials to your home if you are not able to get into a library yourself because of restricted mobility.
