Some clowns in town for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus will be stopping by the Central Library Atrium on Friday, January 7, at 3:30 p.m. to entertain—or terrify, if you suffer from coulrophobia—our young and young-at-heart patrons. Shiny, red clown noses will be handed out to the children.
As a fun incentive to encourage kids to read, the Birmingham Public Library will be participating in a reading program offering vouchers for free circus tickets.
Who may participate? Children ages 2-12.
How does the voucher work? With the purchase of an adult ticket, a voucher may be exchanged at the box office for a free child's ticket.
What are the reading requirements? Four books must be read by children of school age or read to younger children. Similar to the summer reading program, a reading log will be stamped for every book read.
When is the last day to participate? January 26.
Call the Youth Department at 226-3655 for more information.
The circus will be visiting Birmingham from January 26-30. Visit their website for detailed information.
