Kings Heath library

Kings Heath library was built in 1905 at a cost of £3000. It is one of ten Carnegie-funded libraries to be built in Birmingham between 1903 and 1909.

The library has a collection of photographs, maps, and newscuttings as well as a selection of books about Birmingham and the surrounding area, including a selection of digital images of old Kings Heath and Moseley.

Moseley Gallery shows historic images of the area taken from the Warwickshire Photographic Survey, one of the Library of Birmingham's significant photographic collections. The photographs date from 1900.

The library acts as the focus for local history activity in Kings Heath. The Kings Heath Local History Society meets in the library once a month, and has its own archive of local history materials.
