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.

Wrong Dates!

This post is both an apology and a warning… Somehow, despite being passed by three pairs of (not so) beady eyes, we managed to get our 2012 dates a bit muddled on the calendar of events. So if you received a newsletter from us, we’re very sorry, but the dates are incorrect. In early 2012, the correct dates for lectures and A.G.M are:
Winter Lecture Series / Bob Harrison ‘Carry On Up The Volga’ / Wednesday 8th February at 2:15pm
A.G.M / Monday 5th March 2012 at 2pm
Winter Lecture Series / Cecil Jenkin ‘A Newlyn Childhood’ / Wednesday 14th March at 2:15pm

There will be a 2012 newsletter winging its way to you later this month with further (hopefully correct this time) event dates for the rest of the year. Sorry.
