  • Found this place really really interesting - a friend told me about it - i would recommend you call in and spend an hour or so  more »
  • What an amazing addition to the library. Very modern but with the spiral effect it was still in keeping with the original part of the building where I spent hours studying many years ago.  more »
  • You would expect a library situated between an art gallery and a large museum to have a historic feel about it and Central libraru does not dissappoint  more »

  • What an awesome place to read. I love the feeling I experience whenever I’m in there. It got all it takes to make you love reading that’s why I always come back.
  • I work here. I know I'm staff but it's a truly beautiful place. We do our best to give you all the service you would expect from a library like this. The picton reading room and Hornby library and oak rooms are a must we also have 58 computers on floor 1 but please bare in mind that these are very busy during the holidays. We also have some great shows for kids during the holidays so please ask at reception.
  • I visited central library today i would like to thank Georgia this lady was so helpful patience nothing was too much trouble unlike the two male librarians .This lady has been helpful on a number occasions she is a credit to liverpool central library
  • Impressive place, really good equips, not the most new books. Policy os silence si rubbish. If you just want to spend some time surrounded by old books and maybe enjoy a chat with the person by you, or maybe you want an excuse to flirt, this is you library. Definitely not for students
  • Such a wonderful library, so sleek and modern but with a beautiful outside aesthetic. Not to mention the smell inside of the books is wonderful, I could spend hours in here and I plan on it.
