April Events at Carmichael Library


Carmichael Library has been selected as one of 200 libraries, and one of only 33 academic libraries, nationwide for the American Library Association's American Rescue Plan: Humanities Grants for Libraries opportunity, an emergency relief program to assist libraries that have been adversely affected by by the pandemic. The library will use the $10,000 grant to fund several author presentations in April in support of the annual Pat Scales Lecture Series and a day of events acknowledging the legacy of King House and other local histories. The featured authors share a local perspective, either living in Alabama and/or writing about an Alabama historical event. Their presentations will highlight the historical research behind their works.
