The Library of Birmingham in Centenary Square is a £188m replacement for the city’s 1970s-built Central Library which was closed in July 2013. The new building was designed by Dutch architecture firm Mecanoo and is seen as a flagship project in Birmingham’s regeneration. After its September 2013 opening the building will become the largest public library in the UK and the largest public cultural space in Europe.
As the new director of the Birmingham Museums Trust, Dr Ellen McAdam is hoping to expand locally and internationally. The nononsense Scotswoman tells Graham Young of her vision to bring the city's myriad attractions into the hearts and minds of all.
William will also visit homelessness charity St Basils' Carole Gething House in Small Heath, to meet staff and young residents and learn how it is working with Centrepoint, of which he is Patron, on the End Youth Homelessness Alliance.
This city has such an interesting past, and I feel that many more business organisations should seriously consider writing up their history so that future students can benefit from a wider base of knowledge.
