A new mobile library and information service for Clay Country

With my first blog today, I am pleased to be able to report that a new mobile library and information service for the China Clay Area is to be launched on Monday 1st October.

Unlike other parts of Cornwall, the China Clay Area does not have a one stop shop and Cornwall Council has spent less money on what is terms ‘face to face’ services. As local councillors, we have campaigned long and hard to get parity with elsewhere in the Duchy and obviously it is great news that Cornwall Council has agreed to pilot this service for Clay Country.

The “claybus” will be visiting a range of local communities within Clay Country including Bugle, Fraddon, Foxhole, Indian Queens, Nanpean, Penwithick, Roche, St Stephen, Summercourt and others.

As well as offering advice on council services, the bus will be packed with an exciting collection of books for browsing and borrowing.  Local people will also be able to choose from even more titles via the full Cornwall library catalogue as well as to order books, DVDs and CDs.

The timetable for the stops is being finalised and I will publicise it as soon as it is finalised.
