All Birmingham Public Library (BPL) branches work hard to provide services and programs for the public. We'll be starting a new series of blogs soon that highlight some of the best programs happening across all BPL locations. 

In the meantime, enjoy this round-up of youth programs that your children will enjoy, too! 

We have programs for patrons of all ages, but I wanted to highlight family-friendly and youth programs that are happening this upcoming week.

Mark your calendars for these events!
