The Woodlawn Branch Library had its beginning in 1904 when a group of club
women bought a few books and started a library at the home of Mrs. J. B. Gibson.
On February 27, 1905, the library was moved to the business area and opened to
the public. It was presented to the city of Woodlawn on March 7, 1905 by the
club women. Woodlawn became a part of Birmingham in 1910. In 1911 the library
was presented to the City of Birmingham to become the first branch library in
the city system.
