Please note that City Library and the Greater Manchester County Record Office are now closed until Spring 2014 in order to prepare for our big move to the new Central Library.
An exciting new-look Central Library, beautifully and sensitively restored, will re-open in Spring 2014.
Archives+ in Central Library will bring together a detailed and fascinating picture of our region's past, housing materials from a range of partners, including the North West Film Archive, Greater Manchester County Record Office, Manchester and Lancashire Family History Society and the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Relations Resource Centre and Education Trust, under one roof. Access, storage, interpretation and display will all be hugely improved, providing a fitting showcase for Manchester's treasures.
Please note that we are unable to accept any new accessions to our collections until we re-open at Central Library in 2014.
