Press release   •   Sep 18, 2019 09:38 BST

Radcliffe Library will be closed to the public from 21 September to 5 November to allow refurbishment works to proceed in safety.

The work will create public toilets, a kitchenette for community groups, new décor and furniture, plus more public computers and improved local history facilities.

During the six-week closure, books may be returned, renewed or reserved at Bury Library (0161 253 5872), Prestwich Library (0161 253 7214) or Ramsbottom Library (0161 253 5352). Readers can also renew or reserve books online at

Councillor Sharon Briggs, cabinet member for communities, said: “This renovation work has been needed for a long time and will greatly improve library services for the people of Radcliffe.

“We had hoped that the library would remain open throughout the refurbishment, but unfortunately this has not proved possible due to the amount of work being done.”
