Redruth Cornish Language Group is opening up its growing library of Cornish language books to the public.
We meet at the Melting Pot Café, Krowji.
The former Redruth Grammar School has been adding to its extensive collection of books written in the Cornish language and is now pleased to allow the public restricted access to the library whilst they visit the café.
Visitors have already browsed the many reference and story books whilst enjoying coffee or a snack.
The group’s students are often found in the café and the group meets for informal and fun lessons at 5.30PM each Wednesday evening.
A grant awarded by the Redruth Charity Trust has enabled the initial purchase of books. It is hoped that any future grant will further enhance the growing collection.
Anyone interested in learning more of the Cornish language which has seen a resurgence in interest or indeed, learning about the language are warmly welcomed along.
Phone Ben at the café on 07915 252757, email ‘ firstname.lastname@example.org ‘ or just call in!
We’re really excited about the interest in our library resource, and our use of Facebook has produced an astonishing response.”
