Following the death of Ernest Tomlinson in 2015 it became clear that the library would not be able to stay in its location at Chipping Lane in Longridge indefinitely. Thanks to a very generous legacy from a long-term Light Music Society member, as well as help from our members’ kind donations, we were able to take out a lease on new premises at Magna House in Long Preston.
The current premises are suiting the needs of the society well, but we are conscious of the new challenges we will face over the next few years. While we are not currently planning to move again, we are working hard to improve public interaction with the society and library to safeguard the future of this much valued cultural asset.
What are the aims for the LMS library?
