Halloween Events at Birmingham Public Library Include Super Heroes Costume Party, Movies, Storytimes, and Giveaways
Even adults are getting into the Halloween mood at the Birmingham Public Library (BPL). On Friday, October 21, 2016, at 7:00 p.m., the Birmingham Public Library Young Professionals (BPLYP) are hosting a Super Heroes Save the Library costume party at the Central Library.
Attendees who come dressed as their favorite super hero will enjoy a night of music, drinks, and dancing while helping raise awareness of the important resources provided by BPL’s 19 library locations and providing money for public programs. Buy tickets at $10 in advance online at http://LibrarySuperheroes.eventbrite.com.
The BPLYP's costume party is among several activities celebrating the spooky holiday taking place at many BPL locations across Birmingham during the month of October. From a fall festival at the Smithfield Library to storytime with Ms. Eve at the Avondale Regional Branch Library, from a Hallo-Read Fall Celebration at the North Avondale Branch Library to scary movies at various libraries, there are plenty of fun events to enjoy.
In addition, all 19 BPL locations across Birmingham will be giving away free treats to library patrons on Halloween, Monday, October 31, 2016.

Happy Halloween from the staff at the Birmingham Public Library!
