Meeting Spaces

Each branch of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library is home to a public meeting room that is available free of charge. These rooms, in fulfillment of our mission are available for educational, instructional, or civic programs when library programs are not scheduled. 

To request a room, call 419.259.5210.

Birmingham Cultural Center

The Birmingham Cultural Center at the Birmingham Library preserves these traditions with a collection of books and historical documents in English and Hungarian. The collection includes photographs of life in the neighborhood, artwork, clothing, and dolls in authentic Hungarian costume.

Birmingham Neighborhood Collection

This historic collection contains artifacts, dolls, costumes, rare books, and photographs from the Birmingham Neighborhood in the early 1900s.

Memoirs of Elizabeth Frankowski

Mrs. Frankowski’s diary is a record of the events she and her family suffered as a result of the Soviet invasion of Poland on September 17, 1939.

History

Birmingham opened in 1920 in the East Side Community House before moving to its current location in 1930. In 2003, the facility received an expansion that nearly doubled its size, allowing it to host more programs for children than any other branch in Lucas County. Birmingham offers a special collection of materials related to Hungarian language and culture. Special features include stained glass panels and a mural reflecting the Hungarian heritage of the Birmingham community.
