Willis Bradford was a member of the Autauga Prattville Public Library Board for more than 30 years and was serving as Board Chairman up until his death in November of 2021. He was the ultimate public servant and greatly contributed to the life of his community in many and varied ways.
In memory of Willis’s long time service to the public library and to connect with his 59 year association with the Prattville YMCA, the Board of Directors of the Autauga Prattville Public Library would like to place a book drop in his honor at the Willis Bradford Branch of the YMCA. This would allow library patrons who live in East Prattville a way to more conveniently return library books and would be a lasting memorial to his good work for both organizations. The expected cost of this project, including the purchase of the book drop, memorial plaque, and installation, is $6000.
