The Festival of Libraries took place in libraries across Greater Manchester from 15 to 19 June.  The event organised by Manchester City of Literature featured approximately 100 events over 5 days.   Around 20 of these were held in Manchester libraries across the city, with 1000’s of people attending.  It was amazing to see so many people having fun and feeling inspired.

As part of the festival, we asked customers to tell us why they love their library.  The responses were fantastic and an inspiration.  There are videos of customers saying why their library is important to them produced which include customers of Gorton Library and North City Library and here are some of the pictures from various libraries.
