I just go in front of the library I don't enter inside and there are some sculptures and a small garden in front of the library. I enjoyed some time with my friends.

Beautiful use of the space which used to be fragmented and austere. Now very welcoming, pleasant and full of easily available information, books, archives, special collections and displays. Staff are helpful and always willing to really listen and advise.

This building is wonderful! It is difficult for modern buildings to compete in Liverpool because of the plethora of Georgian architecture in the city. This one succeeds!

Very surprising, very informative, well set out with very good staff team. Was not expecting much just looking to kill half hour, but wished I had had more time.

The children's area in the library is the best i have ever seen. It is vast with amazing seating areas. I wandered in with my two 8 and 6 and left two hours later. Better still, as you leave you can turn left or right and find more great museums for kids.

I have used the Central Library , William Brown Street, for most of my life. Recently refurbed, it has a clean modern vibe inside, but is also quite enough to study, read the newspapers, or just for a coffee. The lending facilities can be used by visitors subject to conditions, and the cafes are quite good. There is a terrace... More

Beautiful! A great library you must look up & see the lights. The outside is drab & dark inside is lite & airy!
