Edda Community Arts
Edda Community Arts and Library is an independent library and arts venue. Originally Ainsdale Library, a Sefton Council facility, it closed in November 2013 due to Council cuts.
We have preserved the stunning original architecture whilst giving the building new life. With half of the building preserved as a library, we have put in place a classroom and stage which are already being used for different activities such as drama, dance and ukulele classes.
We have a computerised library system & 650 members of the library to date and 7000 books on the system. We have a range of books & daily newspapers. The library is free to join & borrow books.
We have also installed theatre lighting & sound system creating a fully equipped designated space for performing arts.
PERFORMING ART THEATRE
Our rooms are available for hire & at the weekend we are a performance venue for artists & musicians. We have Jazz, poetry, theatre & children’s events.
An atmosphere of cultural activity, so as you can choose your book you may be entertained by a ukulele class or poetry reading or even a drumming workshop.
Open 10.00 am - 4.00 pm
