Aintree Village – Where once Aintree Library stood….

This is what the site of the former Aintree Library looks like now:-

And this is what it used to look like when it had a flourishing Library:-

Things certainly move on quickly as it seems like only yesterday that a volunteer group was formed to take over this library which Sefton Council had given notice that it no longer was going to run. Of course there were 6 other libraries that Sefton Council swung its axe over – Orrell, Litherland, College Road (Crosby) Ainsdale, Birkdale and Churchtown.

I bet the volunteers who were looking to take over the running of some of the closing libraries are still as angry as I am that they were not given the chance to try to do it. Seeing one of the closed library sites being repurposed, no matter how positive that new use is, does not diminish the anger at how those volunteers were treated by Sefton Council.
