Birmingham Public Library Seeks Memories

In her autobiography Change Me Into Zeus' Daughter Barbara Robinette Moss remembers how she and her siblings would spend hours in the old Birmingham Public Library admiring books of art. Birmingham author Dennis Covington recalls that, after acquiring his driver's license, the first place he drove himself was the downtown Birmingham Public Library.  In April of 2002 the Birmingham Public Library will celebrate the 75th anniversary of its first central library building, now the Linn-Henley Research Library. As part of this celebration the library is collecting reminiscences from those who have used the library over the decades, those who remember the old library as a teacher and a friend.

If you have memories to share please contact the library at, call 205-226-3661 or mail to:

2100 Park Place
Birmingham, AL 35203

This information needs to arrive by December 31, 2001.
