Visit the Central Library shop for unique bookish gifts and Manchester related goodies. Most things are also available online including t-shirts, greetings cards, notebooks, jigsaws and even a specially commissioned silk Manchester umbrella.

Are you looking for unique prints and posters? Manchester Central Library’s poster shop features a beautiful selection from Central Library’s historic collections. The giclee prints on premium silk 240gsm paper make ideal presents.

Many are from our  historic archive collections and means they have smudges, bashes and tears. We have got rid of the creases and punch holes they suffered when they were stored in a lever arch file in the Corporation Transport Department offices, but otherwise they are as found. They are living documents. And, like all other archives, they come with a back story.
