“Wow! what a beautiful library”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Between Walker's great Art gallery and the wonderful World Museum is the magnificent refurbished Central Library. You walk in to a glorious atriumYou must go up ... stairs if possible but there is a lift. The wide spiral staircase with light coming from above is glorious. At the top you can go outside and view Liverpool from a vantage point that's hard to equal. oh yes... you can see some very interesting books too! before you go take a look into the Picton Library which is a circular room. there's lots of interesting displays about Liverpool or its people.

“Great library!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I love this library! A great place to sit and read or work, there's a small cafe downstairs where you can get something to eat. There's outdoor seating available which is a particularly nice place to sit in the summer.
