Bodmin’s new library has opened, offering a six-day-a-week service.
The library re-located from its Victorian-era building in the town centre to the Cornwall Council offices at Chy Trevail, on the former St Lawrence’s hospital site.
The new library is open Monday-Friday 8.30am- 5pm, and on Saturdays 10am-1pm.
The move has allowed for investment in facilities and books, but some people have complained that the new library cannot easily be reached on foot – and that Chy Trevail lacks adequate car parking.
The future of the old library building is uncertain, but now seems likely to be sold.
