Lostwithiel Library

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

Following recent technical difficulties at Lostwithiel Library, we are delighted to inform local residents that the library’s public computers and kiosk are running smoothly. Cornwall Council apologises for any inconvenience caused but hope Lostwithiel residents are now able to make full use of their fantastic library.

Monday 9.30am – 12.30pm
Wednesday 9.30am- 5.00pm
Friday 1.00pm – 5.00pm


  • Disabled access via main entrance.
  • There is parking in the town with disabled parking and some spaces in the street outside.
  • Recycling bags and boxes - this library does not hold stocks but you can order direct using the request recycling equipment / recycling containment online form.
  • Council Payments - Payments for Council services such as Council Tax or Business Rates cannot be taken at this location, however there are a range of PayPoint and Post Office sites that accept both cash and card payments, with most Post Offices still accepting cheques at no extra cost.  Your account will be updated overnight and many PayPoint stores have longer opening hours, often including weekends, offering greater flexibility and choice. Head over to my area to see which facilities are available to you more locally.
