Lines in Liverpool: the Central Library

The splendid, busy and creative place that is Liverpool Central Library.

A contribution to Becky’s October Squares

I'm retired and living in North Yorkshire, where I walk as often as I can, write, volunteer, and travel as often as I can.

  1. A very welcome welcome to October squares . . . and what a marvellous dome. I’ve not made it into the library, clearly it is time for me to visit Liverpool again!


  2. Fascinating photos and always interesting to see a successful contemporary building project working well with what remained of the original and also within all the surrounding Victorian civic grandeur.

  3. I know what Kerry means about feeling off-balance; those angles are discombobulating. (I’ve long wanted to use that word!) But the place looks remarkable and you’ve captured it so well.

    1. Peering at it from odd angles is discombobulating (yeah! Love it too!) but less so in real life. It’s just an energetic space: with quiet corners for reading and studying too.

  4. I haven’t been to the Central Library for decades. You’ve prompted me to correct that next time I get a chance, although it might make me feel wistful. Access to a really fine library is one of the perks of city living.

    1. It is. Liverpool is my husband’s home town, and the library was where he studied during vacations. He’s found it greatly changed, but he liked it as it was, and likes it as it is.
