2007's Season's Readings Is Hot Off the Press!

Book jackets of books reviewed
The 2007 edition of Season's Readings is here. In this year's publication, Birmingham Public Library staff members have reviewed a variety of books covering many of the genres that BPL offers, from children's books to adult and teen books, including both fiction and nonfiction. Look for a copy at your local Birmingham Public Library

In addition to this beautiful print collection, a few of the Season's Readings reviewers recorded their reviews as podcasts which we're offering below. Click on the title of the book to listen to the review. The Birmingham Public Library wishes you a safe and happy holiday season!

These are great reviews and insights. Is there a central site that the library catalogs all of its podcasts?
Or is finding the links in the blog the best way to get to them?

Thanks again!

We do not have a link in the catalog, so the blog is the best bet right now. That's a good idea, though, and we'll see what we can do. Thanks, Travis.

Hi Trav,

From our homepage there is a link titled "Vitual Library". That will get you to the link titled "BPL Podcasts" for all of our audios.

Best,
Melinda
