Looe Library and Information Service

The management of Looe Library and Information Service has transferred to Looe 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.
