The library began on May 13, 1938. Obviously Miss Lena wasn't superstitious. The full story of how that branch got started is included in the library history book - the cover of which is a picture of the Alabama City library. Thanks to the community for their support for over 70 years!
I am exceptionally pleased! They said it couldn't be done and there were so many obstacles, but we persevered and here we are all these years later. A beautiful celebration it will be. ~Lena Martin
