Chetham's Library is the oldest surviving public library in Britain, housed in the center of Manchester in a medieval sandstone building which used to be a prison and arsenal. Some 60 per cent of the Library's 100,000 printed books were published before 1851. They include collections of sixteenth and seventeenth-century printed works, periodicals and journals. But what struck me here in this library, many books have remained chained to their shelves.
