There are plots afoot for Stan’s Cafe to be part of the arts program around the opening of the new Library of Birmingham. As a result I was able to get in on a site visit. WOW, it looks fantastic! I’ve no idea if it’s going to be a great library but if one qualification for a great library is being a place people feel like hanging out it’s a triumph – I’m already packing my sandwiches and thermos. We had to promise not to distribute photographs of the new library but I don’t think this one will get me into much trouble, it’s just evidence of the amazing logistical undertaking it is to move a library from one building to the next.
