It's a very proud day for Birmingham as Malala Yousafzai, the teenager shot in the head in Pakistan for championing women's rights, has opened the city's new library.
The building, which to our delight features a series of rotundas, houses the largest lending library in Europe plus much more. You can enjoy a virtual tour courtesy of the BBC's arts editor, Will Gompertz.
Serious cyclist? The huge Cycle Show comes to Birmingham at the end of this month. You can try out every type of bike being exhibited on test tracks, watch the UK's top trials and BMX riders in action, and practice jump tricks or try out Roller Racing on the AirBag.
