Opened in February 2019, this is the new library on Pott Street in Altrincham. Growing up in Altrincham, I visited the old Stamford New Road library many times. This is a dramatic improvement. The old library was dark and cramped. The new library is modern, bright and inviting. Exploring inside, I particularly liked the community meeting rooms and collaborative working spaces. The wooden and bronze book sculpture in front of the library entrance is also wonderful. Called Eudaemonium, this sculpture is 13 foot tall and by artist Stephen Broadbent.
