Centre for the Child
Goodbye to Centre for the Child...
... and hello to our brand new children's library!
There will be no more events and activities in Centre for the Child as staff are busy packing up the books and preparing for the move to the new Library of Birmingham. We hope you will join us there in the lovely new children's library when it opens in 2013.
In the meantime there will be a limited selection of books for children and young people to borrow on the first floor of Central Library along with a small collection of books for adults.
Find out more about the changes happening in Central Library.
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.
