Alabama State Representative Rolanda Hollis has given a $500 donation to the Springville Road Regional Branch Library to help it provide services for patrons residing in the eastern Birmingham area she represents, District 58.
Hollis presented the $500 check on March 5 at the Springville Road Library to Sandi Lee, deputy director of the Birmingham Public Library (BPL), and Yolanda Hardy, BPL regional manager.
“This library branch serves many of her students and she is honored to be donating these funds,” said Kimberly Hayes, public assistant for Hollis, in a statement.
Lee gave thanks for Hollis's donation on behalf of BPL. The Birmingham Public Library is very appreciative of Representative Hollis's support not only through funding, but also her boundless enthusiasm for library services and her commitment to the community,” Lee said.
In 2017 Birmingham City Councilor Lashunda Scales of District 1 gave the Springville Road Library a $25,000 donation that helped the library buy furniture and other items to better serve patrons.
