Thousands Catch a Bug @ the Library

We are proud to announce that over 6000 kids caught the "reading bug" resulting in 53,336 books being read during this year's summer reading program.

As part of the program, the libraries hosted a variety of events, many of which were "Bug" related. A total of 363 summer reading events were offered at Birmingham Public Library locations during June and July with an attendance of 17,068.

Thanks to all who participated in the Birmingham Public Library 2008 Summer Reading Program, “Catch the Reading Bug” and the teen program “Metamorphosis.”

The Birmingham Public Library would like to express a special thanks to our Summer Reading Partners: Barnes and Noble Booksellers, Bright House Networks, Chick-fil-A, City of Birmingham Division of Youth Services, The Junior League of Birmingham, McWane Center, and Rally’s.

Enjoyed viewing the wrap up video, too.
