Shakespeare Memorial Room

If you visit the new library in Birmingham be sure to go to the very top and visit the Shakespeare Memorial Room. It is quite something! Probably a bit OTT given that when the library was finished they couldn’t afford t run all the services planned!

We need to thank the shade of Tony Crossland for the continued existence of this old room.

In 1970 he, as environment minister, insisted that the room (which was in the about to be demolished, old library) was preserved for the future. It was then kept in storage for many years.
