The new extension is underway! Fences are up and and fencing, ready to be filled with machinery, and work has officially started. On Monday, there was a Ground-breaking ceremony, attended by committee, Cornwall council and, importantly, our generous benefactor Mr Myner. Mr Myner has been associated with the library for over 40 years, and is donating the proceeds of a legacy from his sister, Patricia, who died in 2010. With all the necessary approvals in place, work is due to be completed before the end of the year. We can’t wait to get the much needed extra book & work space, the lift (which will enable us to be much more accessible) and the new room for the photographic archive. We’ll keep you posted as things progress, and please bear with us during this time , we’re sure there will be little obstacles to overcome but are certain it’ll be worth it when we have our lovely new extension!
