Everton Library

Help us save this community treasure

Everton Library was opened in 1896, one of the city’s iconic Carnegie facilities. Designed and built by civic architect Thomas Shelmerdine, it closed in 2006 after 110 years serving the community.

Two schemes in 2014 and 2016 failed to reach the restoration phase. In 2019/ 2020 a new attempt to raise funds to restore this landmark building for community use is underway.

 The vision is to develop the library into a storytelling and enterprise centre, incorporating a genealogy facility to support family history research in tandem with the ‘Lost Tribe of Everton’ memories project. An arts and crafts studio is also part of the plan.

Your thoughts and support will help our quest to give this district treasure a new way forward as a multi-purpose community hub. Your memories will be reflected back in first phase submissions for the Library’s future development.

Send us those personal library memories and tell us how important it would be if it was re-launched offering all of the new menu items highlighted above. Is there anything else you would like the building to be used for?
