Birmingham: Interior of Linn-Henley Research Library
Public libraries should inspire and inform, and the Linn-Henley Research Library in Birmingham does just that. In the main reading room of the circa 1927 library designed by Miller & Martin Architects are murals depicting mythology from cultures around the world. Murals in the children’s section represent children’s literature from 16 countries, and include images of Lancelot, Pocahontas, Krishna, Don Quixote, Goldilocks and Confucius. Later renovations by KPS Group brought the building to current codes and interior elements were restored.
