Birmingham City Councilor Lashunda Scales has donated $25,000 to the Springville Road Regional Library as part of her District 1 Holiday Gala held recently at Huffman High School.
The check from Scales was among several she presented to neighborhood groups, schools, police and others located in the eastern Birmingham District 1 community Scales represents on the City Council. Birmingham Public Library Interim Director Sandi Lee and BPL Board of Trustee members Willie Davis and Georgia Blair were present to accept the check.
Lee said she is appreciative of Scales’ longtime support of the Springville Road Library. Scales District 1 Holiday Gala is among several community events she hosts in District 1 throughout the year to serve the citizens of her district.
“On behalf of Birmingham City Council District One, it is my honor to invest $25,000 to the Springville Road Library to provide additional resources and tools to better enhance the educational prosperity of all of our citizens,” said Councilor Scales in a statement.
