New Library of Birmingam

Heart's been given a sneak peak inside the new Library of Birmingham

The 188.8 million pound building is will open to the public on the 3rd of September. It's expected to attract 3 million visitors every year and is big enough for 10 thousand to visit every single day.

Over 400 thousand books will be available on the public floors and visitors will also be able to visit two roof gardens.

Designers say they 'hope the library will become a centre for literacy, research, study, skill development, health information, creative expression and entrepreneurship.'
