Temporary Hours Set for Birmingham Public Library’s Central Location


Due to rising spring temperatures and a broken air conditioning unit at the Birmingham Public Library’s Central location, the library will have reduced hours for at least the next six to eight weeks. The needed repairs are the result of a January cold snap that ruptured the air conditioner coil in the library’s main air handler. Parts have been ordered. Repairs will be scheduled once the parts arrive.

Starting Monday, April 28, the downtown location at 2100 Park Place will open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday. It will be closed on Sundays. The new hours will not affect the system’s 18 other locations.

“Our patrons and staff have been very understanding as we work through this difficult time,’’ said Angela Fisher Hall, the library system’s associate director. “Our goal is to remain open as long as we can, while keeping our patrons and staff as comfortable as possible. Other city departments are working very closely with us to get the needed repairs completed in a timely manner.’’

To help keep down heat within the building, the access hours to public computers will also be reduced. The public computers will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The free computer classes that are normally offered Monday through Wednesday at the Linn-Henley Research Library have been suspended until further notice. Patrons are encouraged to visit the Five Points West or Springville Road libraries to check out their computer classes. For more information, visit www.bplonline.org/locations.
