About Library Lounge

Library Lounge

Library Lounge is a series of relaxed ‘in conversation’ events featuring interesting and engaging guests hosted at Manchester Central Library.

Participants receive no fee for taking part – and any funds raised, through either ticket sales or donations on the night, go directly to Manchester Central Library Development Trust (registered charity no. 1150161).

The Development Trust supports the work of Central Library across a wide range of areas. This includes allowing it to stay open for longer and more often for activities, including special Sunday Fundays for families. It also helps to fund special events, exhibitions, festivals, education projects and community programmes.

Our next Library Lounge Event

Paul Hanley in conversation

Monday December 4th, 2017 6:15pm – 7:30pm

This Library Lounge event will be an exploration of Paul’s love of music, books and libraries and the influence they have all played in his life.


Tickets to this event are free, but a donation will be encouraged on the night in support of the Central Library Development Trust, the charity which supports the work of Central Library.
