  • Family Festive Fun at LOL! 21st December 2019  1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    A free fun-filled family event at Levenshulme Old Library.
    Saturday 21st December, 1.00pm-5.00pm

    We are hosting an event to take the pressure off families at a busy time of year. Bring your children to the Old Library for Christmas crafts, storytime, a chat with Father Christmas and a family Christmas film - all activities will be led by members of the LOL team, meaning that you can take a moment to sit down with a cup of tea, or use our wrapping station to get on with preparations.

    There will be pre-loved toys and gifts available for families who would appreciate support to provide gifts to their children. Donations welcome but not a requirement.

    If you can donate any gifts, books, toys or items that are in good condition and can be re-used, please drop off at Levenshulme Old Library Mon/Wed/Fri 9am-3pm or email levoldlib@gmail to organise another time.

The Structural Problem

Here is a short soundless video clip showing problem that caused us to have to postpone our Reopening Celebration. This is the East facing (Bluebell) side, at the back in front of the bay window near the accessible loo.
The arch is very shallow and it’s started to give way. The cracks have been there a while but the issue has accelerated just recently.
It’s now safely propped and in new year a steel beam will be inserted over the arch to span the full width of it, plus some, to take the weight off it.

We are hoping that very shortly this crack will be repaired!
