Raise Your Voice To Improve Our Schools!

yeswecanbirmingham logo
Forget what your teacher told you about keeping quiet in the library. It's time to make some noise! Raise your voice and say what you want Birmingham City Schools to become. And it's happening not only in the libraries, but all over town in churches, community centers, homes, and workplaces.

Now is the time to speak up and say what you want from your schools and what you would suggest to make them stronger. What you and other citizens say will shape a new Community Agreement around shared goals—and serve as a road map to better schools.

(BPL Associate Directors Renee Blalock and Pam Lyons discuss the library's involvement with Yes We Can! Birmingham)

Yes We Can! Birmingham needs to hear from every citizen. Help spread the word that everyone is invited, be sure to attend a community conversation yourself, and raise your voice.

Please join one of the Community Conversations at these Birmingham Public Libraries to improve our schools. Check the Yes We Can! Birmingham Website for additions or call (205)327-3803.
