Lichfield Street Hub

About us

Walsall Council has created a flagship, central hub of cultural and social learning. It incorporates the central library, local history and archive collections, and has brought the Lichfield Street building back to its former glory.

The building was remodelled and refurbished, and many original features restored. The grade II listed building was transformed to incorporate the local history centre and archives, lending, reference and children’s libraries, a coffee shop and ICT lounge. It has created a single leisure, cultural and learning hub. 

Our libraries offer an open door to information, reading, imagination, learning and culture - enhancing people's lives and supporting the growth and health of our community.

Library facilities

Lichfield Street Hub can help with any requests that you have for reading and research materials but we also think it is important this information is available to you all the time. From information, learning and leisure needs, we have a wide range of library services.

Walsall archives

Do you need help with your homework project or tracing your family history? Are you writing a business plan and need market research? Or are you trying to find a newspaper article? We subscribe to a wide range of resources to help you.

Room hire

Lichfield Street Hub has many rooms available for hire. If you are looking to hold an event or activity, appointment with a client, private study session, exhibition or workshop, why not book a room with us?

Coffee shop

At Lichfield Street Hub, we wanted to create a place filled with books, fun and friends. Therefore, we decided that the perfect way to do this would be to introduce our coffee shop in the library where all our members could enjoy a drink and some company as much as the books they borrow.
