We are asking visitors to our library to book ahead of their visit so we can make sure their time in the library is safe and stress free, while maintaining social distancing.

As time will be limited, we recommend planning out your visit beforehand to ensure you are getting the most out of the resources we have available. The Library books are now listed on the Salford Library Catalogue online.

Newspapers, early directories and some early voters lists are held on microfilm, please mention below if you require a microfilm reader.

Material from the Salford City Archives are not stored in the library but can be pre-booked to view. Please contact the library beforehand to arrange for delivery of items for your visit – most of these items are listed on GM Lives or the National Archives Discovery websites. Paper copies of the Archive holdings are available in the library, so may require a visit to view separately.

Appointments are limited so please do let us know if you can no longer make it to your booking.

Visits are free; however, we welcome donations. Your support helps the museum to deliver a range of educational activities and to produce a changing exhibitions programme.
