BIRMINGHAM, Alabama-The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) is accepting donations as part of the #GivingTuesday campaign.
 #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Donations help BPL’s 19 locations to serve nearly 1.5 million people a year throughout Birmingham, granting them access to information, programs and resources at no cost.
