As many will know, the future of libraries and One Stop Shops (OSS) in Cornwall has been well debated with many being taken on by local town councils. In Helston’s case, I and my other two former Cornwall Councillors, Judith and Phil, with support of the other local members in the Community Network Area fought hard to make sure all out services stayed open.
The good news for Helston and the surrounding are is the OOS, Library and DWP office would relocate under one roof in a refurbished Helston Library. Therefore, safeguarding future services which have been under immense pressure from cuts in funding. Readers can remind themselves HERE.
However, before that refurbishment can take place, Helston Library has to temporarily relocate to the OSS at Isaac House. Helston Library will therefore be moving to Isaac House on the 16th and 17th of August and will be open for business on the 18th of August.
The opening hours from Monday 21st August will be:
- Monday, Wednesday and Friday – 9:30am till 5pm
- Tuesday and Thursday – closed
- Saturday – 10am – 1pm
I have been informed the new co-located services will be open to the public by the end of November.
