Birmingham opened in 1920 in the East Side Community House before moving to its location in 1930. In 2003, the facility received an expansion that 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.

Our Birmingham Cultural Center is a collection of books and historical documents in English and Hungarian. The collection celebrates the rich Hungarian heritage of the neighborhood and includes historic photographs of life, artwork, clothing and dolls in authentic Hungarian costume.
