  5. About this library

    Manchester’s most diverse and bustling neighbourhood deserves a library to match. So if your morning paper is in Bangla or Urdu, we’ve got it. If you like your picture books in Polish, we have some. If you like your fiction in Farsi, we’ve got that too.

    Upstairs we’ve got Adult Education classes to get you from beginner-level computing to vocational teaching assistant. All this and we have bookable rooms for events and community activities.

  6. Opening times for library

    Longsight  library will be closing temporarily from Wednesday 23rd  August and re-open Wednesday  6th September. 

    This will enable us to finish the library refurbishment.

    There are longer opening hours at Arcadia, please speak to staff for more details.

    Reservations will be available at Arcadia whilst Longsight is closed.

    Councillor surgeries will still be at Longsight library at their regular times during this period.
