Central Library closes for a month of maintenance works


St Helens main library has closed for a month-long period of essential maintenance works.

St Helens Central Library shut its doors yesterday.

A council spokesman said: “To avoid further inconvenience for library customers, nearby Peter Street Library (1.3 miles away) and Parr Library (1.7 miles away) will be open for longer on certain days– as will Haydock Library and Thatto Heath Library on a Saturday.

“Customers may also use any library in St Helens throughout this period.

“Central Library customers wanting to use the ‘quick returns box’ can still do so, as it will be situated in the foyer of the Gamble Building.”
