Torpoint Library and Information Service

Information about Torpoint Library and Information Service

The management of Torpoint Library has transferred to the Town Council as part of Cornwall Council’s Devolution Programme.  This 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. Torpoint 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.

The Library and Information Service will close for refurbishment from close of business, Wednesday 3 April. We will re-open Saturday 27 April.

Customers will be able to borrow items for an extended loan while the library is closed for refurbishment.
