Thanks to two nearby universities and quite a few colleges, Birmingham is no stranger to students. With a lot of students comes the need for a lot of places to hit the books. Birmingham definitely has plenty to choose from. From coffee shops to libraries, here are a few study places to add to your list.
The Library in the Forest
