The library is expected to attract a million visitors in its first year, double previous usage. 'We want it to be a visitor destination in its own right,' says Joyce Little, head of libraries.

Work began in 2010 on the £50m refurbishment and restoration behind the Vistorian facade. A month-long literary festival is planned to mark the opening and to showcase the city's thriving talent.
