  • The library is a mixture of old and new inside but they sit perfectly together. I prefer the older rooms which give the impression of a bygone era of grand library's. It was nice to see so many people...  more »

  • Absolutely fantastic. If you're visiting Liverpool, the library may not sound like a good place to visit but it totally is! Not only is it a good place study, it's also a great place from an architectural point of view. It is a gorgeous and delightful blend of old and new. A must see in Liverpool.
  • Normally I would not recommend visiting a library but this one is special. A wonderful mix of the old and the new, with a huge modern library with a glass spire as its feature, nestled in to some of the old library preserved with its lovely reading room complete with circular balcony, wrought iron railings and stair cases to the next level. Just like something from a movie. If you are in the area take a trip in here just to look around.
  • Amazing library. Fabulous selection of books and beautiful architecture. Plenty of space to work and read. You can charge phones and laptop's while working. Definitely worth a look in the Old Rooms.
  • Beautiful library, well equipped and friendly staff. I prefer it to my own university library, the atmosphere is pleasant and offers a great learning environment.
  • Very nice library, you can enjoy architecture, a lot of place fo reading books, if you want you can just relax in the middle of bookcases or using PC for internet. Worth to visit.
