St Columb Library

Information about St Columb Library

We are delighted to announce a new agreement between St Columb Major Town Council and Cornwall Council which means that the Town’s library will transfer to the Town Council’s management from early October 2018.
The arrangement, which is part of Cornwall Council’s devolution programme, means the library will continue to provide all the key services essential to a modern library. 
St Columb Major Library will also remain part of the countywide library service, so customers will keep their existing library cards and will still be able to visit, borrow and order books online from other libraries in Cornwall.
