Love to Read

Selected resources from the Manchester Metropolitan University Library collection for leisure reading and reading for pleasure.

The ManMet/MPL Collection

The All Saints Library now has a fantastic NEW COLLECTION of 150 books from MPL on offer to you, our ManMet staff and students, as a lovely little extra, to entice you into the world of reading for pleasure, and to introduce you to the delights of your local public library service. The collection is mainly popular fiction, but with a sprinkling of cookbooks and biographies in there too.

The collection launched on Friday 20th January 2017 - have a look here and on our social media channels, but more importantly, allow yourself the luxury and feel the pleasure of losing yourself in a good read... and why not try the MMU Library 2017 Reading Challenge?
