A temporary library service, based in a mobile unit, will operate until the library reopens on 4 March. The mobile library is in the car park of the Public Offices at 288 Clifton Drive South, in St Annes.

Opening times are:

Monday: 9am – 5pm
Tuesday: 9am – 5pm
Wednesday: Closed
Thursday: 9am – 5pm
Friday: 9am – 5pm
Saturday: 9am – 1pm

The mobile library carries a wide range of books to suit all tastes. The titles are 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 are 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 you can select your own books.

Specialist Building Work at St Annes Library

The library closed in 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.
