Formerly housed in The Bobbin Pub on Grey Mare Lane, Beswick Library now shares a bright and modern, glass-fronted building with the East Manchester Academy. Always offering a warm and friendly atmosphere, the library has played a huge part in the recent life of East Manchester.

Down to earth, Beswick Library prides itself on being all-inclusive and welcoming to all. There’s no librarian stacking dusty books, just communal spaces, computers available with knowledgeable staff on hand to help, a homework club, and lots of activities.

All of Manchester's libraries have restricted and changing opening hours due to ongoing coronavirus restrictions; check with individual libraries for opening times before you set out.
