Supporters like you have made BPL a cornerstone of the Birmingham community for 130 years. Because of this support, BPL is able to help patrons of all ages navigate our quickly changing world. A donation of any amount makes a difference. Please help us continue our good work and change lives. Yes! I want to support the library through a tax-deductible gift to the Birmingham Public Library Friends Foundation.

Give online at http://www.bplonline.org/Foundation/givingtuesday.aspx

WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?

We have a day for giving thanks and two days for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, charities inlcuding the Birmingham Public Library Friends Foundation, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

Give and then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity. If you have already given, please consider an addtional gift.
