We are so thankful to all of our supporters, who enable us to continue our important work at Chetham’s.

Chetham’s Library is the oldest public library in the English-speaking world. The Library requires conservation of both its books and buildings, so it remains open to the public and for academic readers. Chetham’s Library cares for a vast Arts Council accredited collection, including the 13th Century Flores Historiarum manuscript, a first edition of John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost; a 1534 edition of Tyndale’s New Testament, Henry VIII’s Prosper of Aquitaine and a wealth of printed and manuscript material on the 1819 Peterloo Massacre.

If you’d like to learn more about supporting us please get in contact, we’d love to hear from you.
