This is a countywide specialist collection located at Falmouth Library due to the influence of the area’s considerable maritime heritage. The coverage of maritime topics is wide ranging and stock includes books, charts, videos, current issues of periodicals and illustrations. Items can be borrowed from most of these categories. The collection contains both historical subjects such as naval and merchant shipping; the practical applications of boat building and repair; navigation and sailing techniques, not forgetting tales of voyages for the armchair enthusiast. Since the opening of the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, our principle reference works have been relocated to the Bartlett Library.
