Temporary closure

We are in discussion with Fylde Borough Council about proposals to put a mobile library on land near the Public Offices to make sure people have access to library services. A mobile library vehicle will be made available and we're looking at parking it near the Public Offices on Clifton Drive. The plan is to transfer 3,000 books from the main building to the mobile library.

St Anne's library remains closed whilst specialist work continues to try to resolve the structural issues with the building.

The library was closed for safety in August 2017 on the advice of surveyors after some plaster fell from the ceiling. As the library is over 110 years old and grade 2 listed, specialist heritage surveyors have had to be brought in to support county surveyors to undertake the work. We are currently considering the results of specialist heritage conservation surveys which have been carried out to inform repairs needed This includes the masonry windows, foundations to the 1930s extension, weather sealing, roof trusses and the cupola. At this stage, we do not know exactly how long it will take to complete the repairs but we will continue to keep you updated as soon as we know more. You will appreciate that we need to make sure that the building is fully fit for purpose for its future use.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

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. Your nearest libraries are Ansdell library and Kirkham library, which will open additional hours.

The registration service is operating on a temporary basis from the Lancashire County Council Estates Office, Hastings Place, Lytham until St Anne's library reopens.
