Relaxing at the Library of Birmingham

Amid the hustle and bustle of the big city, the Library is a great place to relax with friends, unwind with a good book or find a quiet place to calm the mind. There are comfortable spaces to sit on every floor, and our beautiful garden terraces are green havens with wonderful views high above the busy streets.

For quiet thought or prayer, you are welcome to use the Contemplation Room (floor 2).

Did you know...? The Library grows fruit, vegetables and herbs on the Discovery Terrace and we have books to help you grow your own too!
