Library Programs for Our Youngest Patrons
Birmingham Public Library youth programs offer something for everyone, from tots to teens and family fun, too. Youth events at BPL include the following:
1-2-3 Play With Me is one of the BPL grant-funded programs for children birth through age 3, and for their parents and/or caregivers. The program teaches parenting skills and is a forum for parenting professionals to share information and answer parenting questions each week. This five-week program has been scheduled at several branches and the Central Library throughout the fall. BPL libraries supply age-appropriate books, toys, and art activities at each location.
Most BPL locations host a weekly program with library storytellers, such as Tot Time with Mrs. Eve at the Avondale Regional Library. Avondale Library is also a Family Place Library, which is the designation for a network of libraries nationwide. Family Place Library sites redesign the library environment/space to be welcoming and right-sized for our youngest patrons.
Family Fun Night at Avondale Library is Drumming Up Stories with Dave Holland. Holland is the founder of Beatin’ Path Rhythm Events. For more than ten years Holland has spread the message of community, teamwork, diversity, and environmental awareness through rhythm-based events. On Tuesday, November 15 at 6:30 p.m., Holland will bring his message to Avondale Library with stories from Ghana, India, and Ireland.
