Information about St Agnes Library

The management of St Agnes Library has transferred to the Parish 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 Parish Council to deliver the local service. St Agnes 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.
