2017 Summer Reading Registration Under Way at the Birmingham Public Library
If you are looking for fun, free activities this summer, the Birmingham Public Library's 2017 summer reading schedule has plenty of activities to keep you busy.
Build a Better World is the theme for this year's Summer Reading program, with more than 500 free activities for kids, teens, and adults taking place in June and July in 19 library locations across Birmingham. Patrons of all ages can participate in fun and learning focused on creating, repurposing, and building.
Through books, activities, and guest presenters, participants will discover new ways of looking at the world around them. Programs will include a Ronald McDonald's Magic Show (June 14) and Birmingham Fire Department Show & Tell (June 21) at the Springville Road Regional Branch Library; weekly Family Nights on Tuesdays at the Avondale Regional Branch Library that include Shark Week, Talent Show, Legos, and a carnival; Irish Folk Dancing at several locations, M.A.D. Skillz Dance lessons and Drum Circles at several libraries, painting for all ages, and more.
Prizes will be awarded at each of the Birmingham Public Library's 19 locations. The more books you read between May 15 and August 31, the greater your chances of winning! See details on how to register online at any of the 19 BPL locations http://www.bplonline.org/summerreading.aspx.
