Whether you’re after books, news, internet access or just a spot of socialising, Blackpool Library has it all, and it’s open to everyone.

Situated on Redforge Road in the heart of Blackpool, the library endevours to facilitate the diverse interests of its members and local residents.

In recent times the library has hosted numerous exhibitions on subjects from crochet to stonemasonry, as well as talks on topics such as pet care and wellbeing. The library also hosts an Irish conversational group which is facilitated by Cork Irish language organisation Gael-Taca member JP Cotter, as well as the Blackpool Book Club and Creative Writing Circle, a knitting group and an art class.

Children can enjoy the safe and spacious surroundings of the upstairs children’s department, particularly during the month of October for the Children’s Book Festival.

Facilities at the Blackpool Library include daily newspapers, internet access, free wi-fi, printing and photocopying. Membership is not required to avail of most of the library’s services, but guests are encouraged to join for free. To become a member, visitors must bring identification and proof of address.
