The Festival of Libraries returns in June 2022, and will take place in libraries across Greater Manchester. After a successful debut last year, this year’s festival will run from Wednesday 15 to Sunday 19 June, 2022.

The Festival, which is supported by Arts Council England, once again features a varied and vibrant programme that highlights the library network’s full offer, with events taking in wellbeing, activism, culture and creativity, digital and information, and of course reading.
