Dora Sims (President of the Friends of the Birmingham Public Library), Librarian Marguerite Scott, Librarian Leigh Wilson
Leigh Wilson, North Birmingham Adult Deptartment Manager, and June Lacanski, North Birmingham Youth Deptartment Manager, submitted the winning 2009 Beyond the Budget proposal to fund two projects: two family-friendly computer rooms and the development of a teen area.
The family-friendly computer rooms will feature toys, books, stuffed animals, and more to entertain children while their parents use the computers. Children and parents may also use the rooms to work on homework assignments together.
The teen area, which teens will have a part in designing, will provide them with a nook of their own to relax, share ideas, talk, socialize, work on projects, and complete homework assignments.
We thank the BPL Friends Group for this award. Congratulations, North Birmingham!
