Temporary library closures

From 22 July, library opening hours are changing.

These changes are temporary and are solely due to staff resignations which leaves limited staff availability over the coming weeks.

We are currently in the process of recruiting and the temporary schedule will be reviewed regularly, with normal hours resuming as staffing permits.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Balsall Heath library

Balsall Heath library is closed for major building and remodelling works, including adding a mezzanine floor. The work is due to be completed in spring 2025. The nearest libraries to Balsall Heath library are Kings Heath library and Sparkhill library.

Spring Hill library

The library is closed until further notice due to issues with the building. Due to the age and current state of the pipework in the building, a new heating solution is required. A feasibility study has been approved to obtain a quote for a new boiler.

The Library of Birmingham is less than a mile away from Spring Hill library, offering an alternative service for members of the public during the closure. Progress on opening Spring Hill Library will be published here as soon as the necessary works have been scheduled.


All libraries are closed on Bank Holidays.
