Springville Road Regional Branch Library Receives $1,500 Grant from State Rep. Rolanda Hollis

State Rep. Rolanda Hollis, r, presents BPL's Yolanda Hardy with a $1,500 donation for Springville Road Library. 

Alabama State Representative Rolanda Hollis (District 58) has given a $1,500 donation to the Springville Road Regional Branch Library to help it provide services for patrons residing in the eastern Birmingham area she represents.

Hollis presented the $1,500 check on Monday, July 8, at the Springville Road Library to Yolanda Hardy, regional manager for the Birmingham Public Library’s eastern region. Hardy gave thanks for Hollis' donation, adding BPL is very appreciative of  the lawmaker's passionate support for Springville Road Library.

It's her second time providing financial support for the library. In March 2018, Rep. Hollis gave Springville Road Library a $500 donation. At the time, her public assistant, Kimberly Hayes, said in a statement, “This library branch serves many of her students (in District 58) and she is honored to be donating these funds.”

In 2017 former Birmingham City Councilor Lashunda Scales of District 1 (now Jefferson County District 1 Commissioner) gave the Springville Road Library a $25,000 donation that helped the library buy furniture and other items to better serve patrons.
