GO Libraries in Liverpool

Libraries in Liverpool There are 24 libraries in Liverpool, the largest being the Central Library [map] with 23 smaller community libraries spread across the city. A mobile library service is also available, which serves more than 90 locations in Liverpool.

You need to be a Liverpool resident to join a local library, but membership is free to both adults and children, and you get access to a wide range of services, including books, videos and the Internet.

To join you’ll need proof of your address and Liverpool libraries accept a wide range of ID including driving licence, utility bill, bank and building society statements. These days you can also register online by using the online form on the city’s council website and your library card will be posted to you after the information has been checked and processed.

Once you’ve got your library card you can make use of the wide range of facilities and services on offer at Liverpool’s libraries. Among other things you can, borrow books, spoken-word cassettes, CDs and videos as well as find information for your own individual research, use computers with Internet and email access, and research your family history.

If you’re interested in learning more about Liverpool then the Central Library on William Brown Street has a vast resource of information covering the city’s history from the 13th century to the present day. These include council, school, church and business archives, as well as books, maps, watercolours and unique photographs to help you find out about the history of your family, house, street, district, famous Liverpool people, landmarks and events.

The Mersey Gateway project, which is currently underway by a team of researchers at the Central Library, should also shed more light on Liverpool’s history and make it easier to access. Using printed archives, books, maps and old newspapers, the researchers aim to create a website with 20,000 digital images illustrating the history and growth of the port of Liverpool, and the development of distinct communities within the city and in towns on the Mersey.
