About Manchester Libraries


We have a wide range of services for children, young people and their carers at our libraries across the city.


All our libraries have books for children. There are board books and picture books for the very young, story and information books, and graphic novels for teenagers.


Sharing books from an early age feeds the imagination, encourages the enjoyment of reading and forms the foundation of literacy. Find out about Read Manchester.


Every year, we encourage children of all ages to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge.
