Launceston Library and Information Service

Information about Launceston Library and Information Service.

The management of Launceston Library and Information service has been transferred to the Town Council as part of Cornwall Council’s Devolution Programme, which is helping councils and communities take over local ownership, management and control of services. Cornwall Council continues to support the Town Council to deliver the local service. Launceston Library customers will still be members of the Cornwall Library and Information Service and will be able to borrow from the Cornwall-wide stock of books, CD’s and DVD’s, as well as having access to online newspapers, e-magazines, eBooks and computers.
