Virtual Tours of Birmingham Libraries


I just noticed this button at the bottom of the Birmingham Public Library site, which links to a webpage full of mini-video tours of the central downtown branch and five of the Birmingham branches.It’s powered by, so you have the ability to zoom, pause, pan and tilt.

Some of the older tours are powered by MapWing which pinpoints still images rather than allowing you to pan through a panoramic shot.

The Linn Henley Research Library tours don’t do the murals justice. It’s just one of those things best seen in person.

  1. Thanks for mentioning the Birmingham Library’s virtual tours. I know a lot of hard work went into making it happen, so thanks for helping us get the word out.

  2. I must agree. The murals are best seen in person, but if you can’t visit at the moment the virtual tours do allow you to take a peek.

    Thanks for mentioning the virtual tours.

    We have full copies of the murals that we might be able to post on the website. I will keep you posted.
