(WCSA) Top 100 Largest Libraries In The World - P6.Library Of Birmingham, U.K.


(Wcsa.world-indochinakings.org) The new Library of Birmingham is said to be not only Britain’s biggest public library, but also the largest regional facility of its kind in the whole of Europe. Its dazzling silver, glass and gold exterior features interlocking metal rings and was designed by Dutch architects Mecanoo to pay tribute to the English city’s Jewelry Quarter.

The Library of Birmingham is a public library in Birmingham, England. It is situated on the west side of the city centre at Centenary Square, beside the Birmingham Rep (to which it connects, and with which it shares some facilities) and Baskerville House. Upon opening on 3 September 2013, it replaced Birmingham Central Library.

The library, which is estimated to have cost £188.8 million, is viewed by the Birmingham City Council as a flagship project for the city's redevelopment. It has been described as the largest public library in the United Kingdom, the largest public cultural space in Europe, and the largest regional library in Europe. 2,414,860 million visitors came to the library in 2014 making it the 10th most popular visitor attraction in the UK.
