Ground breaking at Gardendale Library

In 1998 the Library Board realized that the current building would not accommodate the growing population and services needed by the City of Gardendale, as well as the surrounding service area. It was put into the Library's Five Year Plan to expand the existing building. It has been a slow process and has taken many hours of talking to officials, raising money, citizen surveys and applying for grants. But we are happy that the plan has now become a reality.

Monday Night BCB for April: Cradle and All by James Patterson

April's meeting has been CANCELLED due to construction at the library

Two pregnant teenagers one in privileged Newport, Rhode Island, one in a poor, remote Irish village have nothing in common except for the stunning fact that both are virgins. Private detective and former nun Anne Fitzgerald is called by the Archdiocese of Boston to investigate and to watch over the girls as they come to term. But Anne hasn't been told the secret prophecy of the Virgin of Fatima known only to the Pope: one of these girls will give birth to the Messiah while the other will bear the child of Satan. Caught between the certainty of science and the possibility of a miracle, Anne finds herself at the center of a terrifying battle on which the fate of humanity hangs.
