Liskeard Library

We are moving...

Liskeard Library is moving (temporary close) to Luxstowe House, Liskeard.

The current library at Barras Street will close at 1.00pm on Saturday 30th March 2019. From Monday 1st April a temporary library service will be provided by Cornwall Council from Luxstowe House for the duration of the library refurbishment works. Parking will be available for visits to the library at Luxstowe House. Once refurbishment has been completed, the Library will return to Barras Street. Both the temporary and newly refurbished library will have staff on hand to help customers.

Planning permission has been granted to a local community group RIO to continue the library service and to carry out significant refurbishment of the building. We see this partnership with RIO as a positive move. The residents of Liskeard will have a fully renovated library building that is more accessible but more importantly safeguarded for the future.
