Manchester Central Library reborn!

From the outside Central Library looks the same, but inside it's amazing! It's been worth the wait - in those 4 years closed they've brought it from the 20th to the 21st century. Brilliant atmosphere and a great selection of books. Simply so much to explore. People from every generation and era were there - the place was buzzing! Manchester definitely needs its library (and branches!)

Just had this email from Isobel Turner who is about to retire:

'Thank you for the great posters - I've used them widely in the library and circulated them to staff, many of whom have commented very favourably. I've seen them in use around the school so I feel they've helped raise the profile of the library considerably. Thank you for the wonderful service you have provided.'

We wish Isobel well in her retirement.

Crime figures have fallen to their lowest level for 30 years - but why?

This is a great topic to discuss: Are the figures accurate? Is it because of better policing? Or locking up more people?

We have produced a FREE resource  - Crime figures - Showing the decline since 1981.  Students can discuss and suggest their own answers. 

A second page -  Crime Figures Answers - gives some suggestions about why the figures have fallen together with suggestions for further reading and research from our Complete Issues series.

A third page - Raw data - gives you the figures behind the graph together with the contrasting figures of Police Recorded Crime.

All three pages are available FREE for current subscribers to Fact File or Complete Issues.

Log in to here
and select Downloads (arrow icon at the top right) and then Extras from the left hand Category menu.

We hope you find this useful.
