Ormskirk Market Day

Our Help Desk in Ormskirk Library has been operating each Thursday for several years to give free help to visitors with their family history. The library have kindly provided three computers for our use throughout the two hours.  It is possible to email any discoveries you make back to your home computer but any printing at the library has to be paid for.

It has been decided by Lancashire County Councl that, as from 1st July 2018, Ormskirk Library will not open on Thursday mornings.  Therefore the Help Desk will now operate from 1pm to 3pm on the 2nd and 4th Thursday each month.  The frequency of the Help Desk has been reduced due to a lack of volunteers to man it.  Dates for 2020 :-

                  Thursday      13th February and 27th February 2020 (1pm - 3pm)

                  Thursday      12th March and 26th March 2020 (1pm - 3pm)


The location of the library is shown on our map and there are three car parks within 100metres. We suggest you try the car park on the corner of Hants Lane and Burscough Street as it is the cheapest but you may need to search for a space. The post code for the library is L39 2EN.
