Many of Cornwall’s Libraries will be open during this current lock down by welcoming you at the door with a click and collect service. Order your books online, then go to your nominated library to collect them from the lobby or entrance. You can also return items as well. Regular library activities such as story-time sessions will have to wait until we can fully reopen. Please keep an eye on our social media posts and publicity. 

Please note that not all services and facilities are available.  Some libraries are  able to offer 30 minutes of computer access for essential use during the lockdown. Please check with your local library before making a special journey.

All online services continue. These include:

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

  • paypoint facilities
  • online options
  • telephone options

The Information Service remains closed. The click and collect service is only for library books.

 

 

The Launceston Registration Office is located in the Launceston Library.

  • We have a car park outside with a disabled badge holder space

For your convenience there are a range of PayPoint and Post Office sites that accept both cash and card payments. Most Post Offices still accept cheques at no extra cost. Your account will be updated overnight. Many PayPoint stores have longer opening hours, often including weekends. This offers greater flexibility and choice. Head over to my area to see which facilities are available to you more locally.
