The Home Library Service delivers books and other items to people unable to visit our libraries and to their full time carers. To find out more please ring 0161 474 5600.
The School Library Service aims to provide a library service to schools which helps to raise achievement and increase access to a broad and enriched curriculum by providing materials and advice about resources.
The Support for Learners Team and Heritage Team have recently been involved in a series of World War Two reminiscence sessions where they helped people to post their WW2 memories up onto People's War website.
The library service is planning to support the Their Past, Your Future project by building on links that they have built with WW2 veterans during the People's War Project.
