Truro Community Library has been fully refurbished with the aid of a £1.4m grant from the Big Lottery Fund.

There is an extended IT suite of public access computers, plus an enlarged junior library with an activities/play area.

  • Lift access to all floors
  • Push button, electric doors with step free access
  • Accessible toilets
  • Baby changing facilities
  • National Concessionary bus pass applications are quick and easy to apply for online. 
  • Recycling bags and boxes can be ordered direct. Please use the request recycling equipment / recycling containment online form.
  • Council Payments - Payments for Council services cannot be taken at this location. These include 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.
