Ormskirk Market Day

Our Help Desk in Ormskirk Library has been operating each Thursday morning for several years, with an experienced member of the Society available from 10.00am to 12noon to help visitors with family history. The library have kindly provided three computers for our use throughout the two hours.

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 2019 :-

                  Thursday     14th and 28th November (1pm - 3pm

                  Thursday      12th December (1pm - 3pm)

                  Thursday      9th and 23rd January 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.
