What people are saying:

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

    Lovely library. A real highlight of Birmingham

    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.
