Formby library

Formby Library is a 5 minute walk from Formby Railway Station, situated opposite Duke Street Park. It offers a range of activities for all ages within the community. Rhymetimes for preschool children are run three times a week. They are held in the junior library, which adjoins the lovely garden, home to library beehives. A weekly Lego Club runs once a week for children and families.

Adult activities include a Creative Writing Group, Breastfeeding Support Group, Visually Impaired Reading Group, Coffee Mornings, IT One to One sessions, Formby Hub helpdesk, and talks by local speakers.

An IT suite which includes computers and a scanner is also on site, with printing and photocopying services available. Seating and tables for studying are also available.

Formby Library has two bookable rooms, a large meeting room and a smaller consultation room, which can be hired out on request and for fee. Contact the library for more information.

There is a community car park adjacent to the library which can be used free of charge.
