  4. About this library

    Hulme had the very first branch library of Manchester’s free library – which was itself the country’s first free library. And free public access to books still matters here with the library now based in the leisure centre on Hulme High Street. While the refurbishment works carry on for 12 months (from October 2017) at the library and leisure centre, the library will temporarily remain open for 30 hours a week, with access to all the books and computers in the library space.
    Hulme’s pioneering, independent spirit lives on here.
