History of Wigan (Help with ancient and recent history.)
They wouldn't give library grants to towns that already had a library. Leigh had one from 1894.
Wigan had one from 1878. St.Helens from 1896.
Due to computers, they're a thing of the past. Last time I went in a library you could hear a pin drop. And no wonder. There was only me and one librarian in there. And she was reading something - on her laptop!
