Today (April 27, 2022) marks the 11th anniversary of the day a massive tornado struck Birmingham’s Pratt City community, including the Pratt City Branch Library and surrounding neighborhoods. The tornado caused such massive damage that the library was forced to close.
New Pratt City Library Branch Manager Saundra Ross said the library would like to pay their respects to families of those who lost their lives and property that day.
Thankfully, most of Pratt City’s library collection was saved and relocated to temporary storage. The Pratt City Branch reopened with a totally new design in February 2014, nearly three years after the tornado. The new Pratt City Branch Library has a storm shelter installed, with concrete walls strong enough to withstand tornado-force winds.
