Camborne’s Passmore Edwards Free Library was built in 1894 but recently Cornwall Council have been closing libraries.  The library was threatened but the building has been saved by Camborne Town Council who are now sharing the building with the library.  This fine building has been extensively refurbished and now looks splendid.  This photograph was shown to the children of Camborne at a schools conference in Lys Kernow in October and at the end the children said that they would like to preserve the building for their future.
