2011 BPL Adult Online Summer Reading Program
Do you love to travel, explore and discover? Well, grab your library card and follow me. The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) will launch its 2011 summer reading program on June 1 at all 18 BPL locations.
This summer travel to distant countries, explore other worlds and make exciting discoveries. Why not travel to South America, explore ancient ruins or learn more about the latest trends in science research? You might read a romance, mystery, thriller, fantasy or crime novel. Just get away from it all. Yes, it’s all there for you at your local BPL branch. We encourage you to participate in book discussions, programs, activities and events that your library has to offer.
This summer adults can explore Novel Destinations by joining the Birmingham Public Library Adult Summer Reading Program. The program begins June 1 – July 31. We are excited to announce our new BPL Adult Online Summer Reading Program. Please visit our Birmingham Public Library Adult Summer Reading Program on Facebook. Register for the program to read books, post book reviews, participate in book discussions, complete reading challenges and win prizes. You may participate in the online and in-person summer reading program.

Believe me, this summer we're destined for adventure!
