Celebrating ICOF 50th birthday – looking back at our loans – Denton West End Library

Communities own business of all shapes and sizes. Community owned pubs and shops are perhaps the most common nowadays, but community owned libraries are in there too.

In 2013, hundreds of people from Greater Manchester got together to save their local library, and we were part of the story, providing finance to realise the dream.

Today, Denton West End Library offers regular library services such as book borrowing, computer access, printing and photocopying and also hosts activities such as a choir, knit and natter group, yoga, community cinema, rhyme time, regular arts and craft activities and other events throughout the year.
