Dreams Start at the Library! Make a Wish!!
Dreams Start at the Library! Make a Wish!
A dream can start with a book, a literacy class, a lecture or access to a computer. Often it starts with asking a librarian a question . . .
"Where would I find . . . and could you help me?"
Our staff is fortunate to have the opportunity to help people in the Birmingham community pursue their dreams every day. Our dream is to make your library an even better place for you, your children and grandchildren.
We've created a new online Library WishList. Browse through colorful pages filled with books, volunteer opportunities, and items we need at your library.
Choose an item you'd like to see at the library, make a contribution towards the purchase (no amount is too small), or sponsor an item in memory of a loved one. When the "wish" is completed we'll let you know, and the next time you're in the library you can see the Wish you helped make come true.
As many of you know, it's National Friends of Libraries Week! In the BPL Friends' ever-increasing desire to support the library, we have funded the Library WishList for BPL. This program will give library supporters, donors, and patrons a chance to purchase much-needed items for library locations throughout the city.
BPL's branch and department heads have submitted wishes which you may view here.
If you have any questions, please contact 205-226-3761. Thank you for helping to grant our wishes.
Your support inspires us to dream big and we would not be the institution we are without you!
