Cornish Studies Library, Redruth, Cornwall

Cornish Studies Library, Cornwall

Cornwall Local Studies library in Redruth covers all things Cornish. It is the only public library with professional librarians and staff specialising only in offering help to people studying Cornwall. No membership is required.

Their printed collection covers all subjects, from mining to modern art, and can offer you much help in researching family history. Only the Cornish Cornish connection is covered here, so you do not have to wade through material that does not concern you.

The storage is temperature- and humidity-controlled. They offer a copying service in the building. Their web site can be a little annoying, as most government ones are, but it is worth while persevering to extract information. Tables, microfilm readers and PCs are available (worth booking if your time is short)
