Daily, the Birmingham Public Library's 19 locations across the city provide free programs and services, showcasing value far beyond being a place to check out books and DVDs. The Smithfield Branch Library’s free ACT prep classes and tutoring services for teens—offered weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays—is a prime example. The Smithfield Library will use BPL’s free database, Learning Express Library, which offers practice sessions for the ACT.
