Make a Splash at Linn Park Fountain: Birmingham Public Library to Host Sign-Up for Summer Reading
On Wednesday, May 26, 2010, the Birmingham Public Library (BPL) will host an exciting sign-up event for all three summer reading programs (children, teens, and adults). This event will take place at the Linn Park fountain, located in between the Central Library and City Hall. From 11:00 am -2:00 p.m., the public may sign themselves or their children up for the host of summer reading programs and activities available beginning June 1.
The library has partnered with several organizations and companies, some of whom will be available for the event. A Chick-Fil-A cow will be on hand, encouraging folks to join us, as well as a balloon sculptor who will be making and giving away his creations. Qualified library staff will assist everyone with the online registration form and answer any questions concerning the library’s summer events.
Even during these distressing economic conditions, Birmingham library staff has pledged to serve the public in unique and creative ways, offering the same great services and resources, and following the BPL mission statement, which is “to provide the highest quality library service for lifelong learning, cultural enrichment, and enjoyment.” In 2009, BPL hosted 426 programs for a total of 20,285 attendees and the library expects to have an equally impressive summer in 2010.
