A festive air and music by the Vestavia Hills High School Jazz Band marked Sunday's
grand opening of the Vestavia Hills Li-brary in the Forest.

A large crowd turned out to celebrate the opening of the $12.7 million library, which is the state's first LEED-certi-fied library that meets green building standards.

A rooftop garden that helps improve building insula-tion, drains in the parking lot to collect water used to irrigate the grounds and low energy lighting are among the new features. The facility off U.S. 31 and Round Hill Road is 12,000 square feet larger than the old library on U.S. 31.
