Library of Birmingham welcomes one millionth visitor

The new £189million Library of Birmingham has today welcomed its one millionth visitor.

Just 100 days since opening its doors on September 3, Joanna Kucper and her baby, Lewis Reynolds, were handed a goodie bag in honor of the landmark occasion.

The milestone means that the new library - the biggest in Europe - has met its predictions of attracting 10,000 visitors a day.
