Fixed Lunch Hour Added to Birmingham Community Library Schedules Beginning January 4
Seven community libraries in the Birmingham Public Library (BPL) system will close for lunch beginning Monday, January 4, 2016. The libraries making this change are: East Lake, Eastwood, Pratt City, Smithfield, Southside, Titusville, and West End.
Each of these seven community libraries will close each day that they are open to the public from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. for lunch. Their hours of operation will now be Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., and 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
“We are making this change in hours to streamline our service system-wide and make the best use of staff,” said Angela Fisher Hall, director of BPL. “This will help ensure that our branch locations have proper employee coverage during the hours they are open to the public. Additionally, library patrons will have access to staff familiar with the branch location, its visitors, and the area it serves.”
BPL’s neighborhood libraries will maintain their current schedule with winter hours through Friday, February 26, 2016. The neighborhood libraries are: East Ensley, Ensley, Inglenook, North Avondale, Powderly, Woodlawn, and Wylam. During the winter hours, these locations are open to the public on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., and 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., and on Wednesday from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.
Library patrons will have access to the Central Library and the four regional libraries—Avondale, North Birmingham, Five Points West, and Springville Road—on Monday and Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., and on Sunday from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
