Crumpsall and Cheetham District Library has been left to rot after falling into disuse after being closed down in 2000 when it was a community centre and badly needs saving and would be a huge benefit to the community in Cheetham and beyond.

    It's about a serious effort was put into saving this building for the community and the future.

    This is a Andrew Carneghie legacy heritage site, created for the philanthropists love of free libraries. Design by the first city architect Henry Price. One of his first libraries to honour Carneghies passion for literature freely available to all. It's ill fated history gave it only 60 years before the function transferred to the Abraham Moss Centre, and it became the Black Resource Centre, until once again the lack of vision and care about its future and place in the community sealed its fate in a fatal incident in 1999.

    There comes a time when people have to taken ownership of heritage, understand its meaning, both the good and the bad. The character and colour of a place becomes special because of its history. A community should be knowledgeable of and connected to that heritage. It is something that forges community. This building should be saved for the community. For an area and the various communities of that area. It can bring people together and bring the heritage lovers of Manchester together. Let the vision of Andrew Carneghie be reborn, let something for the community be returned.

    Could I tell some of my teachers in school that I want to collect some money for the Cheetham Hill Library?
