Preston Library campaigners spruce up garden in front of axed branch
The closed building will be used to provide extra classrooms for nearby primary school
Campaigners fighting to save Preston Library spruced up the garden in front of the closed building last week.
The building, in Carlton Avenue East, will soon be used to provide extra classrooms for reception pupils and will be managed by nearby Preston Park Primary School.
But campaigner Philip Bromberg hopes it can still be used as a community library. He said: “We did it because we care about the library and we want the library back.
“It was upsetting to see the mess it had become. We spent about two hours clearing out about a dozen bags of weeds and sacks of rubbish.

“We also replaced the planters with geraniums. It was a total eyesore before but now it looks reasonably tidy.”
