St Annes Library is temporarily closed while specialist building work continues. Meanwhile, some of the services are being delivered from nearby Ansdell Library.
Short Term Replacement for St Annes Library
Lancashire County Council operate the Library Service. Some of the services previously being delivered at St Anne’s library are being delivered from Ansdell library including collection of reserved items and some events.
A temporary library service, based in a mobile unit, will operate from Monday 26 March. Find the mobile library in the car park of the Public Offices, 288 Clifton Drive South, in St Annes. It will remain there until the work at the library building is complete.
Opening times for the library will be:
Monday: 9am – 5pm
Tuesday: 9am – 5pm
Thursday: 9am – 5pm
Friday: 9am – 5pm
Saturday: 9am – 5pm
The mobile library will carry a wide range of books to suit all tastes. The titles will be changed regularly, with new ones being added frequently. Books can also be ordered, just the same as in a static library. A variety of audio books will also be available.
The unit is fully accessible for people with mobility problems and disabilities. It is fitted with low rise stairs and a passenger lift for easy access so that customers can board to select their own books.
3,000 books have been transferred from the main building to the mobile library, which will be open for 40 hours per week.
Specialist Building Work
The library has been closed since August 2017. After plaster fell from the ceiling, surveyors advised that it should be closed. It’s a grade 2 listed, 110 year old building and has to be repaired accordingly.
