The latest news from Lancashire County Council

St Annes library had to be closed at very short notice on Friday 4 August after plaster fell from the ceiling and was deemed structurally unsafe. As it is a Grade 2 listed Carnegie building, a specialist heritage surveyor has inspected the site alongside Lancashire County Council’s own county surveyors.

The amount of work needed to repair the building is significant but has been approved by LCC.  At this stage it is not possible to give a precise timeframe for reopening since further complications may arise, but it is not expected to reopen until next year.

Meanwhile, Ansdell Library will maintain its extended opening hours.
