Thanks to @Vulex for the tip off, visited here with @Choo Choo m8ty after a visit to the Littlewoods Building.
The library is in a pretty bare condition with a few book shelves and and the odd section of wooden paneling. After getting past an angry @Choo Choo m8ty at the access point we spent a good hour in the building, I only managed to find two books in the place and these were both Christmas cook books.

History
Lister Drive/ Andrew Carnegie Library was constructed with a donation of funding from an Andrew Carnegie, and opened in 1905. The Library is a two-storey brick built building, a slate roof and an octagonal turret and was designed by Thomas Shelmerdine. The Library originally contained a lending library and a number of reading rooms. Sadly, following an accident involving a member of staff, the library closed in 2006 and has remained vacant since. This period of un-occupation has resulted in the library being subject to theft, vandalism and neglect. However the library is set to get a fresh start with plans being approved to turn the building into a community hub.

Well done for getting in here! I haven't seen those first two pictures of it in its heyday. Again,some lovely shots,especially number 4 which makes you feel there should be a sinister wizard in the middle door asking you to choose your path,left or right,or something. I wonder what it says over the middle and right door ; only the writing on the left is clear enough to read.

Dave.
