Nikon Coolpix S3000 Photo #49 Manchester Central Library, March 2010

Manchester Central Library (UK) in St Peter's Square will shortly be closing for 4 years of restoration, refurbishment and modernisation. This iconic neo-classical circular building opened in 1934, and was inspired in part by the Pantheon in Rome, and the New York City Library. It is one of the finest and largest libraries in the country and some of the furniture and fittings date back to the 1930s. The 17th century marble statue, The Reading Girl, sits on the staircase in Shakespeare Hall. She was donated to the Library in 1938.
