Working Class Movement Library Appeal


The Working Class Movement Library in Salford has launched an appeal to help raise the shortfall in their funding. 

Reduced financial support from Salford Council means that they need to raise £86,000 each year to maintain the exciting impetus of their increase in visitors over the last few years.   

The Library is recognised at home and abroad as one of Britain's most important collections of working class history. They are open for everyone to use without charge. The breadth and depth of the archives, books and artefacts makes the Library a vast and unique collection, capturing the stories and struggles of ordinary people's efforts to improve their world.
