IoD West Midlands Hub - at the Library of Birmingham 

We are delighted to announce that our new Directors Lounge, home of the IoD West Midlands office, is now open at the Library of Birmingham.

The Library of Birmingham is open from 9am Monday-Friday.  However, members requiring access to the IoD Hub on the first floor between 9am and 11am, please ask reception/security staff for access to the Core C lift which is located on the left-hand side of the ground floor reception area.

Please note that due to the incorporation of the Brasshouse Language School into the Library of Birmingham, there may on occasions be some disruption to members wishing to use the Lounge. These works are due to run until the end of July and the team at the Library are working with the contractors to ensure disturbance is kept to a minimum.

Please feel free to phone the IoD team on 0121 303 6939 for the most recent update.
