One of Manchester’s most iconic buildings is set to undergo a multi-million-pound ‘transformation’, University bosses have announced.

The John Rylands Library will see £7.6 million spent on it to ‘enhance its contribution to research, student experience and public engagement’.

Located on Deansgate, it is grade-I listed and owned by the University of Manchester. The ‘Next Chapter’ work will include creating ‘an updated exhibition space, an advanced imaging laboratory, a flexible event space, and a refreshed main entrance’.

Architects, Donald Insall Associates, say the new upgrades ‘speak to the building’s evolution through the 1890s, 1920s, 1960s and 2000s’. Try MEN Premium now for FREE...
