Bursting at the Seams

As your librarian and manager for the Bailey Cove Library, a branch of the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library system, I am overjoyed to see such a positive public response in support of a new library building for the community of South Huntsville.

Lift Off: Destination Library

Huntsville and Madison County leaders held a press conference on Wednesday April 15th outside Grissom High School to announce crossing a significant milestone for the New Bailey Cove Library. Over the past few months, Madison County Commissioner Phil Riddick has partnered with the City of Huntsville, the Huntsville Madison County Public Library System and over 90 individuals and corporate partners on a capital campaign to construct a new state-of-the-art library facility in South Huntsville. To date the project has raised over 60% of the $8.4M goal.

The Community's Kitchen

When does 1 million plus 12 equal 2.4 million?  When you’re talking about your Huntsville Madison County Public Library System.  Over a million people visited our twelve locations in 2014 and they checked out 2.4 million items!  So, when people ask me if libraries are still relevant in this age of Google and e-books  I can tell you we’re busier than ever.
