Bards & Brews, the Birmingham Public Library's (BPL) popular spoken word poetry/craft beer event, will travel to the Homewood Public Library to join in on the celebration of 40 years of the Jefferson Country Library Cooperative (JCLC). In 1978 the JCLC was established to link all locally-funded city libraries in the county. Today, 22 member libraries—with 40 locations—offer countywide sharing of countless services and resources with the "One County, One Card" system.
The 40th Birthday Bash kickoff event will be held from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Bring the entire family for fun on the bounce house, food trucks, face painting, and more! Read more about the cooperative at https://bplolinenews.blogspot.com/2018/04/jefferson-county-library-cooperative-to.html.
Bards & Brews kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with musical guest Sol Musica; poetry begins to flow at 7:00 p.m. Refreshments provided by Hero Doughnuts, Hop City, and Red Hills Brewing Company.
