Moss Side Powerhouse Library
Address 140 Raby Street, Moss Side, M14 4SL Telephone 0161 227 3758 Email powerhouselibrary@manchester.gov.uk   About this library If this is Manchester’s coolest local library it’s because the local teenagers who use it also designed it. The interior is filled with vibrant, bold colours, furnishings and fabrics, a perfect setting for picking up a book or using our free wifi. We may be in a purpose built youth centre – thus the youth services and graphic novels, teen fiction, and books for young mums and dads – but this library values older people too – carer groups, the knitting group and the raised-bed community garden out the back are for all to enjoy. If you don’t like doing your homework at home or school, come to the Homework Club Tuesdays and Saturdays instead. Be seeing you!
