Manchester Central Library is due to reopen on 22 March, having been closed since the summer of 2010 for a £48m refurbishment.

School Reporters from Parrs Wood High School were allowed inside the 80-year-old building to question staff about why it took four years to renovate, where all the money came from and how it was spent.
