“I couldn’t imagine my life without the library…”

BPL Young Professional Rikesha Foster talks about how important the library has been in her life.

Rikesha said it best: "The library means so much to so many people." We appreciate everyone who supports and utilizes the services and resources offered at the Birmingham Public Library.

Our BPL Foundation would like to expand the library's collection. The Foundation seeks to raise $50,000 before January 1, 2014. Your donations will be used solely for the purpose of acquiring library materials. Specifically, your gift will allow BPL to do the following:
  • Purchase current and sought-after books and ebooks in all genres 

  • Purchase magazines, journals, and newspapers for both research and enjoyment

  • Purchase databases like Ancestry.com, Reference USA and Morningstar 

Your generosity will touch 1.7 million visitors per  year who visit 19 library locations spanning the city. BPL serves more  people than any other cultural institution in Birmingham.

Your gift  puts books and other reading materials into the hands of the citizens  of Birmingham—whether they walk in our doors, download a book, or visit a  database online.

Your support allows people to start businesses, trace their family’s history, and learn a new language (or two!)
