Campaigners who battled to stop the library from being closed have been told it will be back open on Monday 11 December.
Jane Porter, who raised more than 4,000 signatures in opposition to the library closure, said county council leader Geoff Driver – who is county councillor for the Preston North division – had told her it would reopen in mid-December.
