Wigan Performing Arts Library
After acquiring 40,000 play/theatre scripts and reference materials, ALRA partnered with Wigan Library on a permanent home for the collection as a resource for students and the local community, opening Wigan Performing Arts Library on 1st July 2019. The library is the first of its kind in the North West and a fantastic addition to the library service for the benefit of residents in the Borough.
