Levenshulme Old Library Open Door Celebration

Open Door Community Celebration

Fri 23rd Feb, 4pm – 6pm.

The Levenshulme Old Library team are delighted, finally, to be able to open the doors of the old library to you, our surrounding community.

Doors will be open at 4pm, from 4.30 we’ll have music from the Jazz Biscuits, there’ll be opportunities to chat to our library tenants All FM, to Levenshulme Youth Project and to mindful art therapists from The Owl And The Coconut who are also planning to make the library building their home.

At approximately 5pm MP for Levenshulme and Gorton, Mr Afzal Khan, will deliver a message of congratulations and solidarity to the many people in our community that have fought for three long years, organised and worked hard to secure our old library building for use by our community again as a valuable and highly valued community facility.

From 6pm the merriment will continue next door in the Bluebell.

Whilst there’s some way to go before the library is fully functioning as an Art Centre, we’re very happy to be able to open our doors and invite people inside to once again experience the unique ambiance of this fabulous space and to celebrate the end of a long road that sees us now able to invite you all in.

The event will be a final opportunity to win this fabulous reading chair by Decourcey Designs of Levenshulme Antique Village and announcement of the winner.

This gorgeous reading chair has been delightfully upcycled and tastefully reupholstered reflecting not only the joy it might bring to a keen reader, the book-shelf print fabric is appropriate also because Sharlene has very kindly donated the chair to raise funds for the library. Our Reopening Celebration will be the final opportunity to submit a sealed bid for it. The winner will be announced on the night at the library.

Do come, bring your families, and join us for this celebration of a triumph against the odds for our community.

Historic post:

A structural repair needs to happen without delay and this work will render the environment unsuitable for public access.

This in no way affects our broader plans for the library at all, we’re simply not willing to take risks when it comes to the safety of the people in the library.

We apologise sincerely for the inconvenience this may cause and look forward to rescheduling the event and wlecoming you all into the old library in the new year.

Yours sincerely,
The Library Team.
