Date Correction: Teen 2011 Summer Reading Program @ the Birmingham Public Library
The Reader has an incorrect date of Wednesday, July 20, for Central Library's 2nd Annual YMCA Pool Party that celebrates the end of Summer Reading 2011 for teens who completed the requirements. The correct date is Thursday, July 21. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) 2011 Summer Reading program is in full swing at all 18 BPL locations. Please sign up for the remainder of this summer’s offerings at any branch. BPL’s commitment to outstanding summer reading experiences for children, teens, and adults is reflected in the many and varied offerings for all ages and interests. This summer’s line-up surpasses the highly attended programming offered last year in which more than 6,300 patrons participated, more than 42,700 books were read, and 440 special events were offered with a combined attendance of more than 18,500 children, teens, and adults. Sign up any time at any BPL location to take part in our free and fantastic Summer Reading program.
