Book tickets

A self-guided tour of the behind-the-scenes workings of the Library, with access to areas not normally open to the public.

350 years after it was established, Chetham’s is not just a museum but continues to be a working library. This open day puts on display the inner workings that are usually hidden from view: readers and research projects, the digitisation of Chetham’s treasures, book care and repair, the conservation of the historic building and plans for the future. Discover what makes the library tick, handle items from the collection and find out how to get involved.
