I love coming to this place! The exterior of the building itself is very eye catching, but I adore the interior plus there are amazing views from the terrace!

The renovated library is a lovely place to visit. The grand staircases are very Harry Potter esq and the roof garden is a great place to take some time out and see the city from above.

Library Of Birmingham is a superb looking modern building that dominates Centenary Square.
My twin brother Stephen and I were heading to The Post Office Vaults Pub and passed this extraordinary building, a relatively modern structure set over several floors , I never ventured inside but saw they had a cafe which I would have visited but my tram was about to leave ,I just loved the look of the library building, very photogenic made for some great photographic opportunities, its easy to locate on Centenary Square and hard to miss such is its size.
Well worth checking out if you're in the area.

The building does not go unnoticed.

The Birmingham Central Library is housed in a modern building in the city center. It has several floors and admission is free, but may require advance registration due to COVID-19.

A Lovely building, with lovely spaces.
Feb 2020
A good eye-catching building, full of great spaces top sit and enjoy books. A good viewing platform from the top and open air garden below. Shakespeares room also at the top is worth a short visit. The whole square in front of the library is also a place to be and sit and enjoy watching people and the new trams.

A great resource and great amount of choice. At the top there is a Shakespeare room which is definitely worth checking out. Also a roof terrace where you can overlook the whole city.
