Bright and cheerful, Brooklands Library is housed within the forward-thinking Manchester Health Academy, a secondary school sponsored and driven by the values of Manchester’s University Hospitals and the NHS. It’s becoming a real trend for public libraries to share buildings with other public service providers – and it makes perfect sense – learning and sharing knowledge with others is the best medicine you can get.

With ICT sessions to build on your PC skills, book, coding and even lego clubs, a fantastic collection of books and DVD’s, there's always something on.

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.
