We’re excited to announce that the plans have finally been submitted for us to take over the day to day running of the Library Service in Liskeard, keeping provision in the town centre.  

The hope is to create a contemporary Library for Liskeard; an engaging space, open to everyone and with broad appeal. 

The move comes as Cornwall Council continues its devolution of Libraries across Cornwall.  

Our plans for Liskeard Library show the ground floor renovated into a contemporary, flexible library and reading space – for children and adults alike – with the development of outdoor seating in the rear courtyard as well as a kitchen to cater for events and individual users in the space. The first floor will be designed for co-working, offering offices, breakout space and shared facilities for local businesses as well as for community learning.  

The 20th century alterations to the library will be removed to allow the architectural integrity of the heritage building to take centre stage. Any new additions will be simple and elegant and sympathetic to the original building.

You can also find hard copies of the planning application in the library ‘s ‘Book of Ideas’, outlining floor plans and elevations.
