A family fun day at Fallowfield Library on Saturday (29 August) will give local people the chance to see the new look refurbished premises.
Activities on Saturday will include children's crafts, face painting, storytimes, a local history quiz and other family-friendly fun, as part of the City Council's year-long Proud Of Manchester campaign.
Councillor Mike Amesbury, Manchester City Council's Executive Member for Culture and Leisure, said: "The new-look library has something for everyone from toddlers to teenagers and parents to older people. The open day will give everyone the chance to see the changes for themselves and find out what the library has to offer them."
Work on the refurbishment between April and July included repainting and new carpets plus remodelling to give the library a modern open-plan feel.
There's a new teen section with study tables, a "lips" style sofa and a careers advice section. There are computer facilities, an ICT facilitator and a Homework Club.
The Proud Of Manchester campaign aims to recognise the positive aspects of living in Manchester's neighbourhoods, encourage sustainability and reward good citizenship. It is a year-long campaign themed around the four seasons with the launch organised to coincide with the start of spring.
There's also a new children's library area with additional seating, a sofa and rugs, and the library has new comfortable seating throughout with coffee tables, newspaper stands, displays and information boards.
The library is not just a place for books as it is used for all sorts of community activities, including exhibitions, coffee mornings, councillors' surgeries, fun sessions for parents and toddlers, and access to computers and the internet.
