A rich resource for research, or a place to borrow the latest novel

The Morrab Library. Photo by Glyn Richards.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.

Our new extension is now complete, bringing us much-needed extra storage space as well as a new home for our photographic archive.

We are open Tuesday - Saturday 10am-4pm.
