About Us

The Place at Platt Lane is a community library and resource centre run in partnership Friends of Fallowfield, One Manchester and Manchester City Council
Fallowfield Library & Community Resource Centre (branded as The Place at Platt Lane) is a charity established to retain the only local community building in the area. Fallowfield Library was earmarked for closure and a Charitable Interest Organisation (CIO) was formed to take over the lease of the building from Manchester City Council.
The vision is to make The Place at Platt Lane a vibrant hub in the heart of the community providing a rage of opportunities to support Learning, Skills, Employability, Education, Culture and Wellbeing as well as a space to retain a Community Library in the building.
