  • Beautiful and functional. A combination of old and new areas where you can find not only books but also a place to rest your mind. Liverpool's people can be proud of this place.
  • Amazing building. We only popped in cos the museum toilets were closed temporarily! But a really nice building, obviously well used and respected.
  • Does the Library sell used books? Who would be in charge of that? Does anyone know if that person can be contacted on the net? Thanks!
  • Fantastic library. The new bit has stunning architecture, and the old Picton reading room is beautiful - what you imagine a library should look like. Open till 8pm, has wi fi, computers, coffee shop and plenty of toilets...very handy.
  • A calm in the storm of society a place to grow learn and inspire yourself and the world knowledge is powerful x
