Amanda Jenkins hired as new branch manager at Titusville Branch Library

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama—Titusville Branch Library, #2 6th Ave. SW, has a new branch manager. Amanda T. Jenkins began overseeing the library in late January. Before joining the  Birmingham Public Library (BPL), Jenkins served as the circulation department head at Albert L. Scott Library in Alabaster.

Jenkins has been busy meeting patrons and neighborhood leaders over the past two-and-half months, and is excited to be a part of the Titusville community.

I've worked part-time for the Birmingham Public Library system in the past, and I loved it. I'm thrilled to begin working in Birmingham again, as promoting literacy and public service are my greatest passions,’ Jenkins said
