FALMOUTH Art Gallery and its library have reopened.

In order to keep everyone as safe as possible they are reopening gradually, with things looking a bit different for a while.

Falmouth Art Gallery is currently open from 9.30am to 1.30pm, Monday to Saturday, for timed-ticket slots only to ensure social distancing can be maintained.

A one way system has been introduced, which starts at the main doors of the Municipal Buildings. Lift access and toilets are available.

There are two new exhibitions on offer – ‘20/20 – A Different Way of Seeing’ and ‘P’s and Q’s – Piers, Ports and Quays’.

Tickets can be booked at www.falmouthartgallery.com

Falmouth Library is now able to offer a 'click and collect' service from 9.30am to 1pm, Monday to Friday.

Visitors are asked, where possible, to order books through their online account, then come to the library to collect them when telephoned.

Anyone unable to do so should contact staff at the library.

Items can also be returned without a fine until September 30.

Access to the library is via the one way system in place in the building.

One reader who has visited this week, Alison, said: “I am so glad that you are open again, I’d be lost without my books.”

Falmouth Information Services in the Old Post Office is also open for recycling containment collection, signposting and referrals only, with revised opening hours of 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.

Staff will be available to help visitors, but will be positioned behind protective screens. Hand sanitising stations are in place throughout the Municipal Buildings and Old Post Office and regular handwashing is encouraged.

The Fal Culture Team will continue to add online activities at open.falculture.org for all ages to enjoy.

These include ‘activities and things to make’, ‘things to see, watch and read’, ‘challenges and opportunities’, and ‘what’s happening outdoors’.

Fal Culture is part of Falmouth Town Council.
