St Annes Library side garden
St Annes Library side garden
The concept of the Reading With a View garden was born in 2008. The original idea, which has now been realised, was to transform the existing green space around the library into an area fit to be used by the community for reading and communal activities, and as a place where people could simply relax and enjoy the garden. The Friends of St Annes Library took on the project, secured the funding and saw it through to completion. LinkExternal link

The side garden features a pergola, which has a storyteller's chair and a seating area, which can be used by the Library to provide story sessions for the young and a reading area for older groups. This area also has benches arranged along a pathway that has been specially laid for ease of use by people with disabilities and wheelchair users. The Lancashire-based sculptor Thomson Dagnell was commissioned to create a sculpture for this area of the garden.
