About

The original library first opened as one of Birmingham’s 5 free libraries in 1866, it is now the only one still standing. The public library’s doors closed in 1940 and remained closed until 1990 when the dilapidated space was bought alongside the Bird’s Custard Factory and lovingly refurbished by Bennie Gray. The building was then leased to another company from 2004 until August 2017 when it has been returned to its original owner.
