Working Class Movement Library: building work underway

The Working Class Movement Library (WCML) in Salford will shortly begin work on a major project to eradicate damp in the cellar of the building.

The project will have major benefits such as increasing the Library’s storage capacity, as well as ensuring vastly improved storage conditions for the material stored on the 0.7kms of cellar shelving.

Understandably, there will be disruption to the usual running of the Library while this work is underway. In particular, it will not be possible for readers to have access to the full range of the WCML’s boxes of pamphlet material/newspapers/journals, as the majority of these will be in off-site storage. The project will begin week commencing 6 August 2018 and will last at least until mid-November.

If planning a trip to use the collections, contact the WCML in advance to check availability of material you wish to see, to save yourself a potential wasted journey.
