Spring Break Family Fun at Avondale
It’s that time of year again: birds are singing, bees are buzzing, flowers are budding, and spring is in the air. March 24-31 marks the week of spring break fun for the students of Birmingham City Schools. If you and your family are staying home this week, add the library as part of your staycationing fun.
Tuesday, March 26th at 6:30 p.m. the Avondale Library will host The Giant, The Beanstalk & Jack presented by Lee Bryan“That Puppet Guy.” The show is based on the timeless tale of a lazy boy named Jack who outwits the Giant, gets the gold, and saves the farm. Call 205-226-4003 today to register your family for an evening of Fee-fi-fo-Fun!
