Savick Library

Savick Library is back open for business after it was closed down in May.


A fault to the ceiling left Lancashire County Council with no option but to shut the doors to the library for the safety of staff and service users.

The building, which is owned by Community Gateway, was previously earmarked for demolition with plans for a new purpose built library in the pipeline.

However the fault with the ceiling meant the library was temporarily closed earlier than planned.

Work has now been carried out to fix the building to make it safe.

Steve Lloyd, libraries, culture and registration services manager at Lancashire County Council, said: “We are delighted that the library has been able to reopen again.

“People in the local community really missed it for the short time that it was closed. The importance of the library has been clear to see from the numbers of people that have been using it since it opened up again.

“Libraries offer a vital service, providing free access to books, information and the internet for leisure and learning.”
