Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

About the Old Library

The Old Library, formerly ‘The Andrew Carnegie Library’, was opened in 1905 and this impressive & historic building served the public as a library until its closure in 2006. Now Lister Steps, with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF), will
restore this Grade II listed building to its former grandeur and create a landmark for the local community. The Old Library will allow Lister Steps to offer an extended range of community services that can help to make our area better for everyone. The Old
Library will be a place where people can come together, have fun, learn new things and celebrate our community’s heritage. Building work began in April 2019 and the finished building is expected to open in the spring of 2020. In the meantime, we have lots
of exciting events and activities going on whilst construction is underway.
