Rotaract Club of Birmingham School Supplies Giveaway Scheduled August 18
Saturday, August 18, three of the Birmingham Public Libraries—Avondale, Wylam, Southside—will serve as host sites for the 2012 School Supply Giveaway. The Rotaract Club of Birmingham will distribute school supplies geared toward kindergarten through fifth grade to more than 500 students, starting at 9:00 a.m. while supplies last. “Rotaract is pleased to put on this project, which makes a tremendous impact on our community. With great economic challenges still facing our community, many students do not have the basic supplies they need to help them begin the new school year. This project equips these students with what they need to be ready to learn from day one!”
Before leaving the library, use one of your essential school tools—a Jefferson County Library Card—to check out these books and more.
