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.
