Burnage Library and Activity Hub.

Burnage Library and Activity Hub.

Burnage Library, Activity and Information Hub is run by Friends of Burnage Library, in partnership with with Southway Housing Trust and Manchester City Council. Located in the centre of Burnage, we run activities and educational events for community groups, children and adults. The Hub is also the base for a outreach library service delivered by Manchester City Council.

Our programme of activities and events encourage community involvement, helping people make new friends and learn new skills. Burnage Library, Activity and Information Hub is run by a dedicated team of volunteers committed to providing a much need, and much loved resource for the community.
