Litherland Community Library

Hatton Hill School library threw open its doors to the local community when the local public library was closed. Merchant Taylors' Girls' School has a rather splendid, well stocked library so our librarian took them under her wing and supported them with library stock and materials. Several boxes of books,some donations from pupils and staff were given to the school to boost their library.
