Eastwood Mall Branch Of The Birmingham Public
Library Celebrates 20th Birthday

BIRMINGHAM, AL --  The Birmingham Public Library cordially invites everyone to the 20th birthday celebration of the Eastwood Mall Branch to be held Thursday, November 7, 2002, from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm.

Established in 1982, the Eastwood Mall Branch was uniquely designed from the onset to be a popular materials library and to look and function like a bookstore. Its collection features only up-to-date, high-demand, high-interest materials which are available in a variety of formats for a variety of ages. The Eastwood Mall Branch was established with the cooperation of Eastwood Mall management to address the growing needs of a public library in the Eastwood area and has a core patronage of senior citizens and retired adults, mall walkers, stay-at-home mothers and their children, and commuters traveling home from work.

The Birmingham Public Library and its 20 branch locations provide the public with the most current collections, as well as providing the most comprehensive research tools in the state. The Birmingham Public Library strives to inform visitors by hosting special programs year round, such as Brown Bag Lunch series and Alabama Bound, as well as children’s programs from toddlers to teenagers. These programs allow the public to meet and greet guest lecturers, musicians, authors and publishers.
