The Cornish Studies Library is Cornwall's largest library of Cornish printed and published archival material. It contains a wide range of resources for everyday use and academic research. The Library closed temporarily in September 2018 to enable staff to prepare the collections for a move to Kresen Kernow, Cornwall's new archive centre.
The Library was located in Alma Place in Redruth. Collections include books, maps, newspapers, journals, postal and trade directories, audio and video material, with a large number of Cornish newspapers and census records being available to view on microfilm. Some information on Cornwall for visitors to the region is available in the atrium; however, it is not a fully staffed Tourist Information Centre.
Since the Cornish Studies Library has outgrown the Alma Place site, it will move to Kresen Kernow, a new, purpose-built archive centre. Along with the library, the new centre will house the Cornwall Record Office and the Cornwall and Scilly Historic Environment Record, and it will preserve the Redruth Brewery building (part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site). It is due to open in 2019.
