Looking up at Manchester Central Library

-Look Up, Look Down Challenge, Week 64

Every Thursday, I publish a post containing photo(s) taken from above or below, and invite you to join in the challenge by posting your own photos with an up or down perspective.


“In this institution, special provision has been made for the working classes, by means of a free lending library … this meeting cherishes the earnest hope that the books thus made available will prove a source of pleasure and improvement in the cottages, the garrets, and the cellars of the poorest of our people.”
Charles Dickens,at the opening ceremony of Manchester Public Library, September 1852

And in 2014, we can still enjoy this magnificent establishment, both from outside and inside.  It’s a joy to see the building unveiled after its recent refurbishment.

    • Ha! They will be here, I’m sure, but there are certainly now smaller libraries where it may not be free. Extra services will be charged but not normally books. How much longer that will last I do not know.
