School Supplies Giveaway Coming Soon
The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) is partnering with the Rotaract Club of Birmingham and Birmingham City Schools to host a giveaway of school supplies as the 2016-17 school year kicks off.
Beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 6, 1,000 bookbags filled with school supplies will be given away—250 each at four Birmingham Public Library locations. Participating locations are:
• North Birmingham Regional Branch Library
• Springville Road Regional Branch Library

This is the ninth year the Rotaract Club of Birmingham, a young professionals civic club affiliated with the Rotary Club of Birmingham, has hosted the school supplies giveaway, said Marcus Carson, a member of its board. Carson said individuals and organizations wanting to support the give-away can do so by giving to the Rotarac Club of Birmingham Foundation on their website. The Rotaract Club of Birmingham is the largest Rotaract Club in the world.
