As the title says, this place is amazing! I recommend both local and non-local people visit the central library, it has something for everyone. I particularly love visiting the rooftop terrace, the view is incredible. The building is fantastic, and the staff are friendly and very helpful.

What a great addition to our Liverpool culture city. Suitable for all ages young to old. Easy access and full of things to do. The view on the roof is well worth seeing. The old architecture has been married into the new with great foresight and vision. Visited the archive rooms which oozed history. Highly recommended.

I always enjoyed visiting the library 10 and more years ago when I worked in Liverpool. Visited the building for the first time since renovation and have to say it is marvellous. There is a lovely well-lit atrium with a glass roof which towers skywards. Easy escalator/lift/stairs access to all floors and I'm very pleased to see the older Victorian... More

If I told you what was just inside the entrance it would ruin the surprise for you - you should definitely take a look if you are passing

My husband was not enthusiastic when on leaving the Walker Art Gallery I said I wanted to go to the Library. But as soon as he walked inside he was hooked. The contrast between the Victorian outside and new interior is amazing. We went up to the first floor and looked up and down at the new central part -... More

I wanted to see what the library was like to be reassured that the iconic old building had not been lost. It hasn't. The iconic Picton reading room looks even more splendid and all of the old rooms have been retained. Now though a series of magnificent sweeps and swirls the staircases take you to 4 levels of books, study... More
