Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Out of This World @ Birmingham Public Library Reading Challenge Continues Through January 22, 2017
With Christmas over, all 19 Birmingham Public Library (BPL) locations are now open. There is still time for students on their New Year’s holiday break to read some cool library books and earn a circus ticket at the same time.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey and BPL are partnering to host the Out of This World @ Birmingham Public Library! Through the program, which began December 12, kids can earn virtual badges and prizes including a Ringling Bros. circus ticket by simply reading. Children of all ages through 12th grade can register online or at one of BPL's 19 locations. The BPL Reading Challenge ends on Jan. 22, 2017.
