2013 Adult Summer Reading Program
Yes, it's time once again for BPL's Summer Reading Program. Well, get with the beat, grab your library card and follow me for what promises to be a spectacular summer.
The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) is excited to launch its 2013 Adult Summer Reading Program beginning on May 13 at all BPL locations. This year's theme is "Birmingham's Beat." The program is available to adults ages 18 and older.
Music is a fantastic theme since Birmingham boasts an exciting music scene and hosts many fantastic live music acts. Groups perform at the Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center, Boutwell Auditorium, Sloss Furnace, Alabama Theater, as well as Oak Mountain Amphitheater and various local clubs and festivals. The steamy south has a little something for everyone from cool jazz to down-home blues and country tunes. So, sit back and enjoy those sweet melodious and soothing tones.
While you're having fun this summer , don't forget to visit the Freegal site and download three free tunes a week. The music is yours to keep and never has to be returned. Just visit www.bplonline.org and type in the barcode that is on the back of your library card.
I would like to invite everyone to please visit and "like" the "Birmingham Public Library Adult Reading" Facebook Page. This will later become the Facebook page for BPL's Adult Summer Reading Program. We will have some great prizes to award those who "like" the page and read books this summer. Also, the page will have news, book reviews, and other interesting posts about summer reading.
So, if you would enjoy taking part in the summer reading program by Facebook, check out this page. We would like to increase the numbers of individuals taking part in this program. I have provided the link below. If you have any trouble finding the page, just let us know by placing a comment below.
