The official website for Penzance's independent library, Est. 1818
A rich resource for research, or a place to borrow the latest novel
The Morrab Library is an independent library established in 1818, housed in a Victorian mansion in the beautiful Morrab Gardens in Penzance, Cornwall. We hold over 55,000 books on floor-to-ceiling shelves as well as archives and a rich photographic collection.
We are currently commissioning our new extension bringing us much-needed extra storage space as well as a new home for our photographic archive.
We are open Tuesday - Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday 10am-1pm.
