Set in the heart of Manchester, The John Rylands Library is one of the great libraries of the world. Founded by Mrs Enriqueta Rylands as a gift to the people of Manchester, the Library is one of the best examples of neo-Gothic architecture in Europe.

Since 1900, the outstanding collections, which include printed books, manuscripts, archives, photographs, maps and visual materials, have been cared for and made available to visitors and enthusiasts from around the world. Its treasures span well over five thousand years and derive from all corners of the globe.

From the earliest known forms of writing, on clay tablets to the modern day, the whole of human knowledge is represented. Today, visitors of all ages, backgrounds and interests are encouraged to explore the building and its collections.
