The HIVE, Worcester
The Hive, Worcester's newest public building. The first fully-integrated public and University library, which includes ;
Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service
Worcester City Library
University of Worcester Library
Worcester customer service centre
shop and cafe
The Hive was opened on Tuesday 2nd July and Sue and I visited on the 3rd.
A really impressive building with loads of wide open spaces both outside and inside. I spent most of my time in the Worcester Archive section which is situated on the first floor. The main Public Library taking up all the second floor.
This image shows the huge wall mural situated in the main reception area.
This is a view from the main library reading room, overlooking Worcester Cricket Ground, the river and The Malvern Hills.
Finally this a view from the Library looking down into the sculpted gardens.
