Swinton library

Swinton Library is now open within Swinton Gateway.  The Gateway with its stunning new glass fronted entrance brings together Salford Community Leisure, council and health services under one roof in the heart of Swinton.

Swinton Gateway includes:

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

This move has enabled the library service to extend opening hours, increase the number of public access PCs and improve and extend the space available for community use.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new facility.
