Birmingham Public Library's Summer Reading Programs...Not Just for Kids Anymore
For several years the Birmingham Public Library has offered Adult Summer Reading programs in addition to the long-standing programs aimed at younger people. Each year the participation increases and many previous members return as well to join in the fun.
This year’s theme is “Between the Covers.” The program is available to adults ages 18 and older. Come join the fun which includes programs, prizes, book discussions, special events and, of course, great reads.
To sign up and learn more, visit any Birmingham Public Library location or visit us online at http:www.bplonline.org/programs/summerreading/2012.aspx. And be sure to stop by BPL's Adult Summer Reading page on Facebook to list your books, join discussions, and enter to win even more prizes.
Perhaps the biggest prize for your participation in the Adult Summer Reading program is the opportunity to model a love of reading to the children and others in your household and to your friends.
The library offers summer library programs for adults, teens and children . . . something fun for everyone.
