About BPL @ Your School
"BPL @ Your School" is a pilot project partnering the Birmingham
Public Library and Birmingham City Schools.
This project grew out of the library's desire to take an active role
in supporting the Alabama Reading Initiative. The goal of "BPL @ Your
School" is to make supplemental reading material easily available to
students in their classrooms using Birmingham Public Library books.
Having books on a variety of topics readily available will spark an
interest in students and, ultimately, improve their reading skills as
well as encourage a life-long love of reading for self-improvement and
"BPL @ Your School" serves the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades in
Birmingham's eight K-8 schools.
