St Annes Library front garden
St Annes Library front 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 garden in front of the library offers a number of tables and benches for everyone's use, and an open area, which can be used for community activities for adults and children. The planting incorporates season and sensory varieties, and also features two solar-powered steel spheres, out of which recycled water bubbles up and out and over. Surrounding the water features are flagstones carved with quotes provided by the Library's various reading groups.
