Camelford Library and Information Service

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

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, all libraries, the mobile library service, the Education and Early Years Library Service and Information Service sites are now closed and non-operational. This includes reserving books online. Library members who have books or other materials on loan should keep them at home. They can be renewed as many times as needed online, but all overdue charges will be waived during this time.
The libraries team are currently looking at how it can support the most vulnerable customers. Cornwall Library members can access a wealth of online reading, eBooks, Audiobooks, newspapers and magazines, comics and eGraphic novels using the online library 

UPDATE - We are currently in discussions with local partners to look at ways of safely re-opening library and information service sites. With any model we need to follow the latest government advice and ensure the safety of staff and customers. We will keep residents updated on the Cornwall Library website.
