The Duke of Cambridge will visit Birmingham next week to tour the city's new library and community facilities, Kensington Palace has announced.
Prince William will visit the £188 million Library of Birmingham on Friday, November 29, take part in a children's reading group, meet young entrepreneurs who use the library's facilities and hear a poetry recital.
The library was officially opened by Malala Yousafzai, the teenage girl who was shot by the Taliban for campaigning for the educational rights of women and girls.
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.
To coincide with the recent World Homelessness Day in October, Birmingham City Council, local faith groups, housing associations and health providers across Birmingham pledged their support to end youth homelessness.
William will also visit Summerfield Community Centre in Winson Green to meet families caught up in the Birmingham riots of 2011 and will meet people who are working in the areas affected.
Also on the Prince's itinerary is South and City College, which has been redeveloped as a result of a £3 million investment following the merger of South Birmingham college and City College in 2012.
Following the disturbances in 2011, the new college is working closely with the community providing support to businesses and other organisations. The Duke will visit the newly refurbished centre and will meet people from a number of associations and organisations who have worked to promote community cohesion.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Birmingham in August 2011 shortly after the riots to speak to families and businesses affected.
