Kids at the Central library made prayer flags to be hung at various civil rights sites in conjunction with the Dalai Llama's visit to Birmingham in October.

College football season kicks off this weekend, so we thought we would showcase a photograph from our collections that should prove of interest to Alabama and Auburn fans.

Library books have a rough life. Popular titles (such as Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl pictured here) can go through the hands of several dozen patrons.
bplpics : If a dog doesn't bite them (it happens a lot!) or some liquid does not get spilled upon the pages, then the spine will break and the cover will come loose. As is the case here.
bplpics : We can get a few more circulations out of such books with a little binding glue and some TLC.

#repost from @chandatemple with @repostapp --- Gentleman from Holland wore these #patriotic socks before taking the U.S. Oath of Citizenship in ceremony at the Birmingham Public Library this morning. He is one of one hundred adults taking the oath today. Thirty-five kids will take the oath this afternoon. #TeamUSA #instagrambham #discoverbirmingham

Vulcan has been in the news lately thanks to a circulating breakup letter with the city from a disheartened citizen. The original Iron Man has a lot going for him these days. Things are much better than those years spent as an attraction at the State Fairgrounds near Five Points West. Still, you should probably let Vulcan and Birmingham know how much you care about them in the coming weeks!

Bil Lepp, nationally known storyteller and master of the contemporary tall tale, will perform at the BPL tonight at 6:00 at the Central Library downtown. He'll be at our Springville Road branch tomorrow evening at 6:30. Earlier today he conducted a storytelling workshop with area library folks. You won't want to miss him. #instagrambham
