Manchester Central Library Development Trust (registered charity no. 1150161) supported Central Library’s major transformation, raising essential funds for new furniture and equipment, and for educational and cultural programming. It has helped the library become a popular, lively and dynamic destination, since re-launching in 2014. The Trust’s main priority now is to help raise funds to support exciting new educational and cultural activities. Trust support helps Central Library and Manchester Libraries develop innovative ways or working with new partners and audiences, helping to expand and build on programme successes and supporting sustainability in the years ahead.
