    Nice photo and nice building built in a time when there was great pride in providing public buildings.

    Yes, it's the work of Thomas Shelmerdine and built in 1896. He designed several other libraries etc in his time as Liverpool Corporation Surveyor.

    Wasn't there a community type of thing based there? I just can't understand why they do this,as there are several libraries,now left vacant,particularly the one in Lister drive,which was given free to the city,by Andrew Carnegie!

    Yes I think you're right about community use at one time. There appears to be some interest in re-use of Everton Library:

    Lister Drive library is a lovely building. Such a shame to see the way it is now...
