Redruth Library and Information Service

Redruth Library and Information Service is managed by Redruth Town Council, supported by Cornwall Council.

Redruth Library is now open for full browsing.

Due to stock shortage at the Council, sea gull sacks are currently unavailable at Redruth Library. We will update the information on this page as soon as we have been issued new stock (possibly September or October 2023). Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Council payments and services

  • National Concessionary bus pass applications are quick and easy to apply for online.  
  • Recycling bags and boxes can be ordered online. Please use the request recycling equipment / recycling containment online form.
  • Council Payments. Payments for Council services cannot be taken at this location. This includes Council Tax or Business Rates. However there are a range of PayPoint and Post Office sites that accept both cash and card payments. Most Post Offices still accept cheques at no extra cost.  Your account will be updated overnight. Many PayPoint stores have longer opening hours, often including weekends. This offers greater flexibility and choice. Head over to my area to see which facilities are available to you more locally. Should you prefer to pay online, please use the links below:
