Swinton library

Swinton Library is relocating to Swinton Gateway, 100 Chorley Road, Swinton, M27 6BP. The Gateway with its stunning new glass fronted entrance will bring together Salford Community Leisure, council and health services under one roof in the heart of Swinton.

Swinton Gateway will include:

• NHS clinical services
• Access to council services
• Library
• Community space
• Children's centre services

Swinton library will close at 1pm on Saturday 27th June and will re-open in Swinton Gateway on Monday 20th July.  This move will enable the library service to extend the opening hours, increase the number of public access PCs and improve and extend the space available for community use.

During the closure period customers can access any other public library in the City and can use our online services.
