Levenshulme Old Library

Levenshulme Old Library

Levenshulme Old Library is a historic Carnegie library building in the heart of Levenshulme, South Manchester. It was opened in 1904 thanks to £500 raised by the community and £2,500 from Andrew Carnegie. The building is a Grade II listed structure and is one of the most architecturally significant buildings in Levenshulme.

In 2012, Levenshulme Old Library was closed by Manchester City Council due to budget cuts. However, the building was saved from demolition thanks to the efforts of a local community group, the Levenshulme Old Library Campaign. The campaign group raised £1 million to buy the building and to convert it into a community arts centre.

Levenshulme Old Library reopened in 2016 as a community arts centre. The centre offers a variety of activities and events, including:

  • Art classes
  • Music classes
  • Dance classes
  • Theatre classes
  • Writing classes
  • Film screenings
  • Talks
  • Lectures
  • Workshops
  • Exhibitions

Levenshulme Old Library is a vibrant and welcoming space for people of all ages and backgrounds. It is a place where people can come together to learn, grow, and connect. The centre is a valuable asset to the Levenshulme community and is a testament to the power of community activism.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
