Camelford Library and Information Service

Camelford Library and Information Service is managed by Camelford Town Council, supported by Cornwall Council

Cornwall’s Libraries are now able to offer book services again by welcoming you at the door but not any further just yet. Order your books online, then go to your nominated library to collect them from the lobby or entrance. You can also return items, with no fines until 30 September. Regular library activities such as story-time sessions will have to wait until we can fully reopen. They can’t go ahead until it is safe. Please keep an eye on our social posts and publicity. 

Please note that not all services and facilities are available so please check with your local library before making a special journey.

All online services continue. These include:

If you’ve been longing for a real book in your lap, come back to us from Monday 6 July, opening days and times will vary. Please see opening times below.

Those who use the Information Service for payments and council enquiries should continue to use:

  • paypoint facilities
  • online options
  • telephone options

These have been in place over the last three months. The Information Service remains closed. The click and collect service is only for library books.

Please check Camelford Town Council website for up to date opening hours.

For your convenience there are a range of PayPoint and Post Office sites that accept both cash and card payments, with most Post Offices still accepting cheques at no extra cost.  Your account will be updated overnight and many PayPoint stores have longer opening hours, often including weekends, offering greater flexibility and choice.
