The Birmingham Public Library Eastwood Branch is a former branch library in the Birmingham Public Library system. It was opened in 1982 inside Eastwood Mall.

Assistant library director Jack Bulow suggested the branch as a showcase for popular materials, laid out like a retail bookstore. It was a successful experiment, as the branch experienced consistently high circulation. By chance, the branch became a neighbor of the Eastwood Mall Books-A-Million location which opened in 1989. When the mall closed in 2004, the branch moved to the Shops on Montevallo at 4500 Montevallo Road.

The library closed the Eastwood Branch as a cost-cutting measure at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
