Eccleston Primary School pupils attended the official opening of the new Eccleston Library, on The Green.

They joined county councillors Marcus Johnstone, Jennifer Mein and Kevin Ellard for the celebration.

County Coun Mein, leader of Lancashire County Council, said: “A library has a special place in its local community, for everyone from the under fives who are learning to read to octogenarians learning how to surf the web.

“In these difficult financial times, it’s great to be able to improve a much-loved local service and I hope everyone in Eccleston makes the most of their new library.”
