Beautiful building, a must see on a visit to Manchester and there is even a nice coffee shop downstairs as well!
Took a visit just to have a look around the building. Beautiful architecture and there is even a nice cafe on the way out!
This library is invariably under the shadow of the bigger University of Manchester John Rylands library, however don't underestimate this library, its large variety of books, friendly staff and good quiet atmosphere. I personally have used this library during the exam times when all the libraries around the university are stuffed to the rafters of stressed students. It was a better place to revise and a great chance to see parts of the city you don't normally see on your walk there. Recommended.
One of the best libraries in the country and is only getting better. A great variety of books, friendly staff, modern and easy to use facilities, can you ask for anymore
Basically, the library to end all libraries. I bet it's more impressive than the great library. It certainly is now anyway.
I never really got to grips with library study, being confused by the Dewy decimal system, and distracted by the girls. But, I did love the range of incredibly geeky books here. Good times!
