A novel way to share books in Manchester.
We’ve no shortage of gorgeous libraries in Manchester and could easily while away the day basking in the soothing presence of all those words. But as lovely as it is to be among the beautiful architecture of John Ryland’s library (for example), it feels a bit wrong to be spending these last summer days cooped up inside.
Which is why Spinningfields’ Little Library, a new installation designed by Caroline Dowsett, is a treat for book lovers and nature lovers alike.
The teeny, tiny book box can be found nestled among the greenery of Hardman Square, opposite The Lawn Club and is the perfect place to discover your next fictional favourite (and share your old loves).
Featuring bestsellers, new releases and captivating classics, you simply take your pick from the carefully curated collection and replace what you take with a recently read book of your own.
A Spinningfields spokesman said:
“Our self-sustaining library will always have a new surprise to discover.
“From Jane Austen to Stephen King, there’s something to suit everyone, so open the doors, bag a book and grab a deckchair to start your journey. You never know what you’ll find next…”
