Central Library Hosting Neighborhood Meet and Greet August 3
The Central Library is hosting a meet and greet reception for Birmingham's newly elected Neighborhood Association officers, community leaders, elected officials, and the general public on Thursday, August 3, 2017, 6:30-8:00 p.m. This event will include music and light refreshments.
The purpose is to promote the library's education programs, technology services, exhibits, and signature events that are available for the public, as well as to introduce key staff and obtain feedback on the quality of services delivered at the library's 19 locations that serve Birmingham's 99 neighborhoods.
These representatives are key influencers in their respective communities, and they serve as liaisons between residents, local government, and various service providers. The goal is to equip representatives with information about the free programs and services available to library cardholders, so that they can share these resources in their neighborhoods.
This event is sponsored by the Friends Foundation of the Birmingham Public Library, State Senator Linda Coleman-Madison, Birmingham Coca-Cola Bottling Company, and Publix Super Markets, Inc.
