Birmingham Central Library information
Although each of the universities and university colleges has its own excellent libraries, you might still end up writing an essay or leafing through reference books in Birmingham Central Library. It’s the busiest public library in Britain and occupies eight floors. Shaped like an upside down ziggurat, it’s slap bang in the middle of town, making a spot of study possible between shopping trips. Plans are also afoot for a brand-new, multi-million pound library in nearby Centenary Sq.
