BOOK lovers of all ages will be delighted to hear that Falmouth Library is extending its opening hours and from April 1 it will be open on Wednesdays from 9.30am until 1pm.

This means that throughout the week the service can be accessed between 9.30am and 5pm, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; and 9.30-1pm on Wednesday and Saturday.

The changes are part of Falmouth Town Council’s ongoing commitment to extend the library and information service, which is took over from Cornwall Council. The library, housed on the ground floor of the Municipal Buildings on The Moor, is now part of town council’s cultural services department.

Jayne Cardew, senior library and information assistant, said: "We are really pleased that the library will now be open on Wednesdays and the people of Falmouth will have more opportunity to enjoy the library services."
