"Winner, Winner, Books and Dinner": #GivingTuesday and the Gifts that Keep on Giving

https://www.facebook.com/GivingTuesday
#GivingTuesday™ (#GT) is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The second annual GivingTuesday is on December 3, 2013.(BPL participated last year with thrilling results.)

At BPL, we will celebrate #GivingTuesday by directing all gifts to the BPL Foundation Annual Campaign, a campaign where 100% of the gifts will allow the Birmingham Public Library to do the following:
  • Purchase current and sought-after books and ebooks in all genres 
  • Purchase magazines, journals, and newspapers for both research and enjoyment 
  • Purchase databases like Ancestry.com, Reference USA and Morningstar 
  "Winner, Winner, Books and Dinner"

This prize includes dinner for two at Birmingham's delicious El Barrio as well as a shopping spree at the BPL Friends Bookstore (for a total value of $75.00).
