Description & Services
Information The Truro Library moved to the old Normal College (directly behind the previous location) and opened in September 2016. The Gates Learning Centre closed when the old library closed. There is no longer a dedicated computer lab, but a similar number of public access computers are retained, and most are on the main floor in the atrium; four in the children's department (reserved for children 12 and under) and four on the second floor. This page gives general information on the use of computers in all branches. Internet Code of Ethics and Rules and Regulations for Computer use:
