Important information: There is currently an intermittent fault at Hattersley Library which may affect both open+ and PC use. Open+ at Mossley Library is now working but there are currently no printing facilities. We are working hard with our partners to resolve these issues and will provide updates as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.
