Neighborhood Libraries Return to Regular Schedules
Birmingham, Alabama—At its regularly scheduled November 2011 meeting, the Birmingham Public Library Board of Trustees approved a seasonal operating schedule for its six neighborhood libraries. Beginning Monday, March 5, neighborhood branch locations of the Birmingham Public Library (BPL) in Ensley, Inglenook, North Avondale, Powderly, Woodlawn and Wylam will resume their regular schedules, ending temporary winter hours. Effective on the first Monday in March, the hours of operation for the neighborhood locations will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. On Wednesdays, the libraries operate from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. All other BPL locations maintain their regular schedules. In future years, the temporary winter hours for the neighborhood libraries will begin the first Monday in November and end the first Monday in March.
The neighborhood libraries will continue to close each day from 12:00 p.m. until 1:00 p.m. for lunch. All are closed on Wednesday mornings in order for staff to get behind the scenes work done, perform community outreach activities, and participate in training as well as system-wide meetings.
