Birmingham Public Library Accepting Donations During #GivingTuesday on November 29
The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) is accepting donations as part of the #GivingTuesday campaign.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Donations help BPL’s 19 locations to serve nearly 1.5 million people a year throughout Birmingham, granting them access to information, programs, and resources at no cost.
BPL has been educating the public for over 129 years, as noted in a national spotlight feature in the Atlantic.
The Robotics Marathon, held recently at the Central Library as part of Teens Engineer Birmingham, is among many free activities held in BPL’s 19 libraries daily. The afterschool program teaches engineering skills to dozens of teens weekly at the Southside, Woodlawn, and Central Libraries.
Because of the generous contributions of people like you, BPL can continue its mission of enriching the lives of Birmingham citizens like Calvester Sanders and the teen engineer participants featured below:
