Make It A Grand Slam Summer 2010!

Grand Slam Summer ImageWe are so excited to tell you about the Grand Slam Summer Adult Reading Program which begins June 1- August 21, 2010 ! The program coincides with our Pride and Passion Exhibit and the 100th Anniversary of Rickwood Field. We have so many fun and educational programs happening at local libraries this summer. We also have a number of performances that will take place at libraries during the summer. You just have to visit to find out everything we have to offer. Grab some popcorn, candy, an ice cold coke, and let's get ready to hit it out of the ball park!

In order to participate, adults will be asked to complete an entry form, including name, contact information (phone or e-mail) and the name of the book you read. If you would like, you may also keep a log of the books you read during the summer. Libraries will have weekly drawings for small prizes. In August, a drawing will be held at Central Library for at least three big prizes and other additional prizes.

The entire Birmingham Public Library System will be participating in the summer reading program. Please check with your local branch for program information. Check our Eventkeeper under the Adult Summer Reading Program heading for a complete listing of programs and activities.

Just make sure you visit your local library this summer to take advantage of all we have to offer. Get ready to have a Grand Slam Summer @ your library!

Ladies and gentleman, oh my goodness, it's out of the park! We have a Grand Slam!
