BPL Celebration of 2019 National Library Week Concludes April 13

The Birmingham Public Library has been celebrating 2019 National Library Week, with more than 30 programs taking place across the city showcasing the valuable services we provide.

The theme is Libraries = Strong Communities.

Public libraries are more than just a place to check out books, DVDs, music, and do research. BPL offers free WiFi access, partners with organizations like The Dannon Project through its Social Workers @BPL program, offers public access to computers, hosts town hall and neighborhood meetings.

BPL also offers innovative programs like Bards & Brews, a monthly spoken word poetry-craft beer event, and partners with the UAB School of Engineering to offer Teens Engineer BHM, which offered a Robotics Build & Battle at the Central Library April 6 thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham. 

 At BPL, you can check out Ukuleles at Avondale Library, check out board games at Eastwood Library, take advantage of dozens of free monthly computer workshops at the Central Library, take ACT prep classes at the Smithfield Library, research your family history through BPL's Beyond the Basics of Genealogy workshops, and teens can record music in the Central Library Youth Department Create 205 Learning Lab.
