Birmingham City Council

What's in Central Library for Young People?

Central Library has now closed permanently as we prepare for the opening of the Library of Birmingham on 3 September 2013.

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.

Please bear with us during the final stages of preparation. Your new Library of Birmingham will be well worth the wait!
