From Cornwall Council:
We’re building a new archive and local studies centre for Cornwall. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cornwall Council, the new centre will be on the old brewery site at Redruth.
Our consultation questionnaire is now live. Have your say about what the new building and service looks like by completing the Kresen Kernow online questionnaire.
The new building will contain public reading rooms, a reference library, a café, exhibition areas, a learning space for school, community and public events and activities, work areas, meeting rooms and specialist store rooms for books, photographs, newspapers, maps and documents. It will greatly improve storage conditions for the collections; public access to them; the events and activities we can host and the services we can provide.
The building will bring together the collections of Cornwall Record Office, the Cornish Studies Library and Cornwall and Scilly Historic Environment Record. Together they form the biggest collection of information for studying Cornwall’s people, places, history and culture. The collections contain documents, books, records, maps, photographs and databases, and date from 1150 to the present day.
Your views count and you can have a say about what the new building and service looks like. There will be a range of roadshows across Cornwall, a questionnaire in hard copy and online, and we will also be setting up focus groups to help us think more about particular themes and how we improve our services and access for different audiences.
At the roadshows you will be able discuss the project and the new and improved archive service with members of the team.
