Cornwall Library and Information Services are inclusive. We can support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Some of our sites have level access to the buildings for wheelchairs as well as disabled parking spaces. We plan all activities with a view to the needs of those attending. Some sites have quiet areas, some can dim the lights.

Children aged 8 and under remain the responsibility of the parent during visits to our sites. We are responsible for ensuring your child is safe and secure within the building. Some of our teams are trained in first aid. All staff have had a DBS check and have had safeguarding training. Our service policies include safeguarding/child protection, and Equality and Diversity.
