Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday and the Birmingham Public Library will be celebrating this special day in fine fashion from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in BPL Central's Atrium.
We'll have Mardi Gras music, cake, beads, as well as books, CDs, and DVDs for you to check out.
You will have the option to tell one of the library's L2 Krewe members what the library means to you, as we will be hosting informal interviews.
I'm told that even Elvis will be in the building.
In these difficult economic times, the Birmingham Public Library wants to remind you that we serve as a free institution for all people and that no matter what, we will continue to provide the highest quality of library service.
So, to paraphrase old Marie Antoinette, let us eat cake in the Central Library's Atrium from 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.!
Here's an example of some music you may hear if you come marching in (with the rest of the saints, that is):
