The Library of Birmingham in Centenary Square opened in September 2013 and was 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 seen as a flagship project in Birmingham’s regeneration. It is the largest public library in the UK and the largest public cultural space in Europe.
The Post revealed last week that thousands of books at the flagship £190 million library could not be accessed six months after it opened because it has not bought equipment to reach high shelves in the reference “stack” area.
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.
