What's in Central Library for Young People?
Preparations to open the Library of Birmingham on 3 September 2013 are entering the final stages. We have worked very hard to maintain services in Central Library for as long as possible. It is essential that we now wind down services, so that we are ready to open the Library of Birmingham on time. This means that.
• From 4 January 2013 Central Library will be closed from Floor 3 upwards. Business & Learning services on the first floor will also close from this date. A much reduced library service will be available on the ground and first floors, with a basic lending library offer including children’s books and space to study. The Internet Centre will remain open.
• The current Central Library will close to the public forever at 5pm on 29 June 2013 (apart from reception, Tourist Information and The REP’s Box Office until September).
Hours extended at some Community Libraries
Birmingham has 39 Community Libraries and until September 2013, those closest to the City Centre – Spring Hill, Ward End, Erdington and Handsworth – will open longer.
You can also visit the Library online. A brand new Library of Birmingham website goes live in early 2013.
Please bear with us during the final stages of preparation. Your new Library of Birmingham will be well worth the wait!
