The new St Helens Library was officially opened at the World of Glass this morning by Andy Reid MBE.
Council Leader David Baines, Cabinet Member for Libraries Anthony Burns, and Conor McGinn MP joined those in attendance to help cut the ribbon and declare the fantastic new facility open.
St Helens Library will be open six days a week and is among the first five libraries to open since lockdown, joining Parr, Chester Lane, Eccleston, and Newton-le-Willows after being identified as having the space to reconfigure layouts in the interest of social distancing.
Libraries that are yet to open are under continual review and a decision on their opening will be made when it is safe to do so.
Visitors to all St Helens libraries are required to wear a face covering.
The opening hours of the town centre library are as follows:
Monday: 10am – 7pm
Tuesday: 10am – 5pm
Wednesday 10am – 1pm
Thursday: 10am – 5pm
Friday: 10am – 5pm
Saturday: 10am – 1pm
