About the project

The idea

This new project will bring together a trail of 15 current libraries in Manchester. The aim is to increase access to books via libraries that are accessible, diverse and engage their local communities. In starting the initial project, they realised they would also be having a big environmental impact by diverting books from landfill - when they are no longer readable, they can be used for bookmarks, decorations and art. The project will also encourage a reduction in consumption of new books within the community.
