Local residents are invited to join in a morning of fun at Levenshulme Library next Friday 17 April to celebrate its refurbishment, which was completed earlier this year.
The library is better than ever after receiving its share of £1 million, which has been invested into the city's libraries, and now it is time to celebrate.
Having been closed between November and January while work was underway, Levenshulme Library will now host a family fun day for local people to come and see the improvements for themselves and to enjoy the activities on offer.
Busy mums can unwind with a series of beauty sessions that will be available throughout the morning, while a local history display will be a real point of interest for visitors. There will also be crafts and refreshments.
Councillor Mike Amesbury, Executive Member for Culture and Leisure at Manchester City Council said: "Feedback on the improvements from local residents has been extremely positive and we hope the fun day will encourage even more people to come to the library and see what it has to offer. We pride ourselves on providing a modern service that meets the needs of the whole community and I hope as many people as possible will join us at the fun day and find out more about the varied information and activities the library offers."
Improvements made to Levenshulme Library have included redecoration, recarpeting, new shelving and furniture as well as structural works to the roof and brickwork, and repairs to the guttering, window frames and railings. The library will also have new books available for loan.
Other libraries in South Manchester to benefit from the £1million investment from Manchester City Council are Burnage, Didsbury, Fallowfield and Withington.
The Levenshulme Library Fun Day will take place on Friday 17 April 10.00am - 12.00pm.
