Childrens Community Library - NOW OPEN!

Crawshawbooth Community Library is now open! It is nearly two years since the old Crawshawbooth Library was closed by Lancashire County Council due to a cost cutting review. During that time we have been working behind the scenes with many different departments @ LCC to secure the complete transfer of The Village Centre building, including the Library to The CA. 

The old Library area has been re-decorated with the carpets cleaned ready for re-opening. The Community Library offers Children's Books plus Large Print & a 'Book Exchange' for the older reader.  Seating, WIFI & Refreshments are also available.
