I Like Big Books and I Cannot Lie!
Young Professionals Group Hosts Fundraiser for Birmingham Libraries
Birmingham, Alabama—The thicker the book, the better. If this is your philosophy—or not, then make plans to join the Birmingham Public Library Young Professionals (BPLYP) for their first social event of the year on Thursday, July 25, 2013 from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Avondale Brewing Company located at 201 41st Street South. Tickets can be purchased online at www.bigbooks.eventbrite.com for $20 or at the door for $25. A ticket includes one free Avondale brew (while supplies last), food from Saw’s Soul Kitchen, and the opportunity to win a gift basket filled with books and other goodies for library lovers.
The BPLYPs are Birmingham Public Library’s newest support group, comprised of accomplished young professionals ages 25-40 who live and work in the metro area. The mission of the BPLYPs is to promote the library through cultural events and service projects and support library programs through fundraising events like the social. This is the BPLYPs first fundraiser. All proceeds will go to support the Birmingham Public Library and the efforts of the BPLYPs.
Interested in supporting the library as a BPLYP member? There are still a few seats left on the Birmingham Public Library Young Professionals Board. Interested young professionals, ages 25-40, can go to http://www.bplonline.org/yp/ for more information or to fill out an application.
