All proceeds benefit the Library’s programs and services.

“The Friends of the BPL May book sale has been a traditional highlight of springtime in Birmingham; it’s another sign that we are ‘getting our groove’ back,” said Friends of the BPL President Ryndee Carney. “With the return of the Celebrate Birmingham Hometown Parade, it will be a fun weekend downtown. We’re looking forward to seeing lots of customers shop our large selection of new inventory that has come in since our February pop-up sale."

Donations continue to be dropped off at BPL on a regular basis, and the selection of materials for sale include a large selection of lightly used hardcover and paperback books for children and adults, along with DVDs, and music CDs. 

Established in 1950, Friends of the Baldwin Public Library is a non-profit association that supports and enhances the Library’s goals. The group of volunteers raises thousands of dollars each year to supplement tax-payer funding the Library receives.
