A community led future for Levenshulme’s Old Library building
Levenshulme Old Library CIO has a vision. We want to create:

  • A community centre that all sections of the community can use
  • A home for arts and cultural activities
  • A home for performance, music and events that celebrate our community
  • A Youth friendly Space
  • A home for learning and growing, where individuals can improve their lives
  • A home for groups: Offices, meeting spaces, resources etc
  • A building that pays its way whilst benefiting the aims above (such as through pop up cafés, exhibitions, a party venue and place for celebration)
