Manchester Central Library
Manchester Central Library, which is the second-biggest public lending library in Britain (after Birmingham's), is a circular building, south of the extended Town Hall. The library was constructed between 1930 and 1934 but, because of its traditional neoclassical design, many people mistakenly believe that it is much older. The form of the building, a columned portico attached to a rotunda domed structure, is loosely derived from the Pantheon, Rome

The building, which was first opened by King George V on 17 July 1934, is a Grade II* listed building (English Heritage ID:457312 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings). It re-opened in March 2014, after a four-year project to renovate and modernise its facilities (LinkExternal link The Guardian)
