Engaging Libraries Manchester funding success

Posted 25 Nov 2019 by Sue Lawson in Latest Libraries News

It has recently been announced that Manchester Libraries have been successful, along with 13 other projects, in receiving funding from the Engaging Libraries

Phase 2 programme.

This fund was open to projects where public libraries would partner with research organisations, so the library could be used as venues to assist with research.

Manchester Libraries partnered with the University of Manchester's Multilingual Manchester for the 'Language Diversity in the City'. They recently worked with Multilingual Manchester on the Made in Manchester poem and International Mother Language Day.

The project will use four of our libraries to help Multilingual Manchester with their research, and allow us to further celebrate the linguistic diversity of the city. The libraries are Central Library, Forum Library, Longsight Library and North City Library. The project will begin in 2020 and complete in 2021.


North West Libraries

Librarians in the North West have pioneered partnership working to encourage new readers into libraries. Time To Read is a partnership of librarians engaged in reader development activity in public library authorities in the North West Region. 22 public library authorities in the region currently support Time To Read.
