Museum St. Library move
Maintenance work will be taking place at Warrington Museum the Library and because of the nature of the work it will mean that the building cannot be occupied whilst repairs are undertaken. The collections will need to be moved out or protected.
and the library itself will be moving to Golden Square Shopping Centre from the 7th May.
Share your reading experiences
Reading has provided an respite from the gloom of the last twelve months, helped by the positive response from Livewire when they have been able to open libraries. You may been acquiring new books from sources other than libraries, in addition to re-reading old favourites that have been sitting on a bookshelf. We wondered if our SWISH members would like to share some of their reading experiences from 2020.
Order and Collect Service
Our libraries may be temporarily closed but we are here to help with our free Order and Collect Service (available for adult and children’s books). Simply email us and tell us the type of books you like to read. We will select up to 5 books for you to collect.
