gorgeous building, not just a library, but so much more. There are beautiful reading rooms with rare books to see, a roof terrace, a games room, and wifi, ipads and computers throughout.

The library is becoming a great meeting place for locals and tourists. Good café and a welcoming feel for all ages. The best advert for the Library? it doesn't feel like one. Take a trip.

There is also a nice little coffee shop so you can sit and enjoy the view and the activity - it is clearly a very successful local 'hub'.

The Central library really is key to helping me during my hours of study for my degree. The old architecture from the outside is beautiful and really compliments St Georges hall and the museum next to it. Staff have always been friendly and willing to help with my queries, even if this meant them going out of their way. The... More

As a traveller in need of using a computer, I went to the library in hope of help and was not disappointed. With a temporary membership,it was possible to make use of a computer. Thank you,Liverpool Central Library.

Who thought it would be a good idea to have the whole building open plan with a glass roof so noise travels everywhere. Don't bother coming here if you want peace or quiet, also the security is so ott
