    Default Toxteth Library - Windsor Street

    AN HISTORIC Liver-pool library is to get a 1.3m makeover after Lottery funding was secured.

    The city council has successfully bid for the cash to transform Toxteth Library so that it can offer a broader range of activities to the local community.

    The library, on Windsor Street, was opened in 1902 and attracts over 1,000 people a week, but its facilities badly need updating. more

    It's about time!
    It's a fantastic building, which is overlooked.
    I am in there often, and the range of books is really limited.(but the local history section is actually quite good!)
    They should open up the top floors and let us have a little look around

    Default Toxteth Library

    My abiding memory of the place ,from a few years ago, was the awful state of disrepair the building had been allowed to deteriorate into by Liverpool City Council. It's a delightful building which will benefit from refurbishment. Let's hope they reverse the gross act of municipal vandalism and scrap off the paint sprayed onto the glorious wall tiles.

    Here it is.... I spent a large part of my childhood in there. :-)

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
