Reopening libraries

Chatburn library is reopening on Monday 1 July at 1pm. The library will be reopened by County Councillor Albert Atkinson Cabinet Member for Technical Services, Rural Affairs and Waste Management.

Discover SCART Club, a reading challenge with a difference to keep kids entertained over the summer holidays.

The cabinet has made the decision to reopen libraries which closed in 2016, wherever possible. 

The following libraries have now reopened:

We are still working to bring Lytham library to the Assembly Rooms, making sure that the necessary legal agreements are all in place. Work will also need to be carried out internally to the building. We're planning to open the library this year. Negotiations are ongoing between ourselves, Lytham Town Trust and Fylde Borough Council and we'll let you know an opening date once this is clearer.

Further consideration is being given to library provision in Briercliffe, Rosegrove, Read and Northfleet.

We are also supporting communities to run their own community libraries.
