The library staff headed by Saundra Ross-Forrest will visit a local assisted living residence for senior citizens to present an overview of North Avondale Branch Library’s services, resources, and upcoming programs. This community outreach program is just one example of the partnerships BPL shares with communities systemwide.

In addition to ladling up refreshments of hearty taco soup, the evening activities will also include a screening of the feature film The Help. The film is based on the bestselling novel of the same title, and one of BPL’s Top 5 books selected by patrons in 2011.

The BPL has copies of the novel by author Kathryn Stockett, in book and e-book formats, as well as DVDs of the film. With a valid library card in good standing, you may reserve books or films at the library or by visiting the library website, www.bplonline.org. To download the titles in e-book format, from our Library Resources page under Find Books and Materials click on Download Audiobooks and eBooks.
