This is also the perfect day to see what more our beautiful library has to offer. Next to the exhibitors' stands is the wonderful collection of local history books, then there is the archives search room, which can be seen before coming to the suite of pubic computers, some of which are reserved on weekdays for the family history helpdesk run by our volunteers. Lifts are available to all floors, the 4th floor contains more books of interest to family and local historians whilst the main, traditional library is now in a new, modern area accessed from the library basement.
Also, have a look at the floor in the glazed library entrance in Library Walk. The floor is studded with the cotton flowers of the textile trade, and some of those flowers are illuminated and display the names of those who lost their lives at Peterloo.
