The iconic Library of Birmingham in Centenary Square is being lit up in green and white to mark Eid celebrations in the region.
As Muslims across the West Midlands celebrate Eid al-Adha, the city’s main library in Broad Street is marking the occasion by lighting up in green and white this evening.
Thousands of Muslim families are celebrating Eid al-Adha in their homes, mosques and public parks, and the Library of Birmingham will join in and mark the event by lighting up the building in green and white.
