President Obama is making a speech in Birmingham today and we have found a photograph of another President making a speech in town -- this image features a crowd gathered in Linn Park to hear Theodore Roosevelt make a speech about child labor practices. #tbt #instagrambham

bplpics : The photograph is from the collections of the Library of Congress and was taken by Lewis Hine in 1911. (Presidential history buffs know that Roosevelt was no longer in office in 1911 -- after leaving office, Roosevelt preferred to be called Colonel Roosevelt and this image is labelled "Colonel Roosevelt Giving Public address in Birmingham National Child Labor Committee Conference.")

Librarians utilize many resources when choosing books and other material to add to the library's collections. Birmingham Public Library staff often utilize 'Advance' a publication from Ingram - the largest book vendor that we utilize. Many librarians also look at Kirkus Reviews, NPR Books, Los Angeles Review of Books, New York Times Book Review, Good Reads, and countless blogs and online reviews in order to find books for our shelves. What resources do you utilize to find new books to read?
fixedbaroque : Definitely bookriot.com. :)

New Release of the Week (Nonfiction): 'H is For Hawk' by Helen Macdonald has been garnering accolades from critics and readers across the country. The book chronicles how Mcdonald trained a goshawk (the most difficult bird to train in the art of falconry) in order to heal after the death of her father.
