Birmingham is best known for its Civil Rights sights and musical heritage, but between live jazz and historic attractions catch the Birmingham Museum of Art or enjoy a detour through the city's botanical gardens.
Hawkes Library is still the quaint, personal library it was at its founding in 1922. It offers a welcoming atmosphere that is rich in tradition and history. Hawkes is one of the few libraries where a signature on a card still allows you to borrow a book. You can often overhear a parent finding their childhood signature on a card, as their son or daughter checks out a book to read. Beyond providing reading materials for the community, the library hosts many special events throughout the year and maintains reading programs for children. The library also holds many local historical resources and offers many services to the community.
Hawkes Children's Library of West Point was built in 1922 and added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 28, 1990.
