Southport library

Big Cat at Southport LibraryThe fully refurbished Southport Library re-opened in 2013 following a major improvement to the Lord Street building, which is part of the wider Atkinson cultural centre project.

The showpiece is the extended children’s section with room for activities and events, which includes a ship, specially made for the library, named after Kathleen - a real fishing boat built in Southport around 1900.

Other additions include a new teenage space, self-service machines and information pods, a wider range of books and access to toilets.
