Changing people's lives

Described by its architect Francine Houben as a 'people's palace', the Library of Birmingham is highly accessible and family-friendly. It delivers excellent services through collaboration between the library, The Birmingham Repertory Theatre, partners and communities. It provides a dynamic mix of events, activities and performance together with outstanding resources, exhibitions and access to expert help for learning, information and culture.

A centre of excellence for literacy, research, study, skills development, entrepreneurship, creative expression, health information and much more, the Library of Birmingham can change people's lives.
