“Really interesting”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a must on any tour and if you can get to see something at the theatre at the same time then you will hit the jackpot

“Good selection of material and audio”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Whilst the central library is still being worked on , this temporary replacement is a good selection, with plenty of computers and books on display and helpful staff to assist with needs.

“It's closed”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Even though it was right across the street from our hotel, we were shut out because it's undergoing extensive renovations. Check the website to see when it reopens.

“Manchester Library”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Impressive old building in the centre of Manchester. There was a great theatre company based here, but they are currently renovating the library so the theatre company are working elsewhere. I can't wait for it to come back to the library as I used to be a regular. The theatre was small and the atmosphere always great.

“A Lovely old round Building”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

This is closed at the moment because a lot of work is being done both in and around it. I am sure it will be well worth another visit when it is finished
