BPL Spinners Club Spreading Music Appreciation throughout BPL This Summer

Russell Lee to lead blues music discussions during Summer Learning at BPL

Hey music lovers across the City of Birmingham: the BPL Spinners Club is spreading the joy of music throughout library locations across the city as part of the Birmingham Public Library’s 2018 Summer Learning activities.

Next stop: BPL Spinners Club to be held Monday, June 19, 11:00 a.m., at North Avondale Library. Attendees will spend time listening to some of the best in blues and learn interesting facts about various artists. The brainchild of Russell Lee, Library Assistant III in the Arts, Literature and Sports Department, BPL Spinners Club is a music-based program in which attendees will listen to preselected music recordings and then open the floor for brief discussions about them. The club debuted in February and explores a different genre of music monthly. Patrons may bring a light snack and a nonalcoholic beverage.

"I enjoy this opportunity to share the gift of music with patrons in a laid back and relaxed atmosphere,” said Lee, an accomplished pianist. “The Birmingham Public Library continues to offer cutting edge programming that reaches into our communities promoting lifelong learning and educational experiences."

Here is the remaining schedule for BPL Spinners Club during 2018 Summer Learning (All programs begin at 11:00 a.m. and are geared toward patrons at least 18 years old):

June 19: North Avondale Library
June 25 – Smithfield Library
June 26 – Southside Library
July 09 – East Ensley Library
July 10 – Powderly Library

For more information call Russell Lee at 205-226-3673. The program was a November 2017 recipient of an Innovative and Cool Award of the BPL Board of Trustees, which funds unique programs that benefit library patrons.
