North Birmingham Library Staff and Pets Relocate for Renovation

A construction crew will move into the North Birmingham Regional Library on Monday, July 2, to begin a 90-day renovation of the building’s roof and HVAC system. The project addresses roofing, heating, and AC concerns which have been lingering for several years. During the construction period, staff working at the region’s largest library will work at other locations throughout the system. If the project moves along as scheduled, the building will reopen in early October.

North Birmingham library patrons interested in visiting Nibbles the rabbit and the other pets featured during “Grub Down” at the library can see their furry friends in the Central Library’s Youth Department. The animals will remain at Central throughout the renovation period.

Summer Reading programs which had been planned for North Birmingham are now scheduled at other locations—children’s programs get underway at the North Birmingham Park and Recreation Center located at 3501 28th Street North and adult programs will be held at the Ensley Branch Library located at 1201 25th Street, Ensley.
