Redruth Library and Information Service

Information about Redruth Library and Information Service

The management of Redruth Library and Information Service has transferred to the Town Council as part of Cornwall Council’s Devolution Programme.  The devolution programme 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. Redruth Library and Information Service 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. 

Please note that Redruth LIS will have reduced opening over the Christmas and New Year period. For opening hours please view the Library and Information Sites Christmas and New Year Opening hours.
