Tuscaloosa Public Library - Brown Branch

The Brown Branch, located within the Bobby Miller Activity Center, offers its patrons the same materials and services offered at the Main Library and Weaver Bolden Branch. Requested materials are transferred daily among the branches. The branch offers a variety of programs throughout the year for children, teens and adults. Every program presented or sponsored by the library is free of charge.

The Brown branch is named after James M. Brown and his sister Marina Brown. James and Marina Brown were the children of Judge James Clinton Brown and Mary Grace Maxwell of Tuscaloosa. James Brown was self-employed as a real estate and property appraiser for most of his career. He was best known for chronicling local news and events as editor for 55 years of the Exchange Club’s newsletter, the Unitor. Marina Brown is best remembered by the students she taught at Stafford and Verner Elementary Schools in Tuscaloosa. After retirement, she taught a class of international students at the Baptist Center at The University of Alabama.
