Our Community Libraries

Our libraries are a central point of our community, and provide vital resources for local people. As well as offering a variety of reading material, they are often the first point of contact for many seeking direction to local services, such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, food banks, adult education courses, and more. The libraries offer activities such as book clubs, stop smoking groups, and computer classes to help with job applications.

Computers, photocopying, and printing is available at all of our libraries, and our knowledgeable library staff are able to provide computer assistance if needed.

All three of our libraries are affiliated with Liverpool City Council Libraries.
