BPL Food Truck Friday Begins Today; Proceeds Benefit BPL Bookmobile Project 

Birmingham, Ala.- The Birmingham Public Library launched "Food Truck Friday" today, March 5, kicking off a series of events every Friday throughout March that allow the public to whet their palates and help support the 2021 BPL Bookmobile initiative.   Birmingham Public Library launching Bookmobiles to bring libraries to the community | CBS 42 
Thanks to a donation of a vehicle from the Birmingham-Jefferson County Transit Authority (BJCTA), the Birmingham Public Library is preparing to convert it into a bookmobile that will take its library services of books and other catalog items beyond its four walls and deliver them to the community.
Food Truck Friday will take place every Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at four BPL locations: Central Library, Avondale, Five Points West, and Springville Road. 
The schedule is on the attached flyer and on the blog link above.  
BPL hosted another food truck fundraiser, called Soulful Sundays, last December 6. (Link to NBC 13 report) Birmingham Public Library holds event to support bookmobile ( 

BPL plans to introduce its bookmobile later this year and is asking individuals and others who support the cause to join the effort. Your continued support of libraries is vital as much of our success depends on you! We look forward to seeing you! 
For decades, bookmobiles have been a popular outreach method used by public libraries across the United States.
