Formby Library re-opens next Tuesday
Formby library has almost completed the refurbishment and is due to re-open next Tuesday 1st September. This will be a week behind schedule but worth it.
The Formby Principal Library Manager said,
"The refurbishment is for library use only with a state of the art coffee vending machine for a quiet read with a classy cup of coffee. We will also be offering new computers for public to use, free wifi, reading groups and much more".
