3rd Sept 2013 saw the official opening of the new Birmingham Library. Costing £189 million and housing one million books, the stunning building was declared open by Malala Yousafzai, the schoolgirl shot by the Taliban.
Mrs Beeson went to visit the facility and was bowled over by the range of books, e books, audio books and computers. Overlooking Centenary Square, with wonderful views over Birmingham, the Library is open 7 days a week with tours available, events, a café and a virtual library online.
We’ve enclosed some of Mrs Beeson’s photographs to give you a flavour of her trip but recommend you visit yourself to fully appreciate how lucky we are to have something so magnificent in the Midlands.
