The BPL Spinners Club is getting in a “spooky mood” in preparation for Halloween 2018. On Tuesday, October 16, 6:00–7:00 p.m., in the Central Library Create205 Learning Lab, the club will celebrate “Spooky Music.” Treats will be provided.

BPL Spinners Club, founded by Russell Lee of the Arts, Literature and Sports Department, is a music-based program in which attendees 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.

“October’s BPL Spinners Club is truly going to be a ghoulish and macabre listening experience," Lee said. "I promised Vampira (played by Cyndi Barnett of the Catalog Department) I would include Thriller on the playlist."

Lee, an accomplished pianist, said it has been a joy meeting in the library’s laid back, relaxed atmosphere with BPL patrons who have a passion for music. This summer Lee took the BPL Spinners Club on a tour of library locations across Birmingham to spotlight the blues. Read more about the club..
