Workmen in the Fulwood library building

Fulwood’s library is preparing to reopen its doors after 15 months of closure.


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.

The previous Labour administration implemented a number of library closures in a cost-saving drive, a decision which is being reversed by the Conservative-led county council since they won power in May this year.

The county council said 11 December would be the reopening date and a reopening celebration was planned for the day from 9am.
