Library News

  • On Wednesday 10 December from 10 – 11.30am Dukinfield Lively Library Club for over 55s and the visually impaired will be finding out about Christmas Day in the Workhouse. Come and listen to this interesting and entertaining talk by local historian Chris E. Makepeace.

    The Club meets on the second Wednesday of every month at the Concord Way library. We offer speakers, workshops and the chance to meet new people and try different things. There is no need to book, just turn up on the day.
  • Please note the telephone lines into Central Library Ashton are not working. Engineers are currently working to repair the problem as soon as possible.

    In the meantime Central Library is open as normal. However if you are not able to visit the library and your query is urgent then please contact another Tameside Library by telephone and staff will be happy to assist.

    We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and would like to assure customers that we are working to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
  • Denton Library is to relocate to Denton Town Hall as part of a wider programme to reduce the number and costs of Council-owned buildings.

    Tameside Council’s priority is to save services over buildings in its challenge to meet £142m Government funding cuts to its budget.

    Denton library is moving as part of this strategy and will in fact be going back to its original roots as the service started life in a room in the town hall in 1888. However the space will be completely re-designed to allow delivery of a modern library service.

    To enable this work to be done the current library facility will close completely on Saturday 6 December 2014 at 3.00pm and re-open on Monday 5 January 2015 in the town hall.

    Users will be able to borrow as many items as they need before the library closes to ensure they are well stocked during the transition period. They will also be able to use any other Tameside Library to return and borrow items.

    Executive Member for Health and neighbourhoods Cllr Lynn Travis said: “Our budget is effectively being halved by the Government and, given this financial challenge, our priority has to be saving services over buildings. Denton Library is returning to its historical roots in the town hall but the space will be purpose designed and offer all the latest technologies including ebooks and free wifi.

    “We look forward to welcoming people to the new library and thank them for their patience during the transition.”
