The mobile library provides a library service to rural areas in Cornwall where there is no static library or micro library. The mobile library continues to run during this current lock down, and in line with Government guidelines, we are welcoming you at the door.
Please follow Government guidelines whilst waiting/queuing for the mobile library.
We are operating a click and collect service. This means that you should order your books online by browsing the online library catalogue and make your selection. You will be notified once they are ready for collection. Please note that your reserved items will then be ready for collection at your next regular mobile library stop. You can also return items.
If you are unable to access the internet to reserve your books online please talk to the Mobile Library team. They will aim to provide you with a ‘quick selection’.
We have continued to increase our list of eBooks and eAudio books. These are FREE for Cornwall Library members so that you can read a wide range of books without leaving home. Downloading is easy, just follow our instructions on Borrow Box.
Please continue to check this page before your visit in the event that there are any changes.

Where's my nearest library?
Our Home Library Service is for anyone who is unable to use the library. They may have a disability, long-term illness or caring responsibilities which make it difficult for them to get out. Home Library Service volunteers will bring books and other materials to your home. This is if you are not able to get into a library yourself because of restricted mobility.
