The Friends of the Birmingham Public Library is a member-driven structured nonprofit association of individuals providing for various special needs of the Birmingham Public Library through community-based efforts. They attend to the Library’s needs, generate new ideas, offer advice and encouragement, volunteer their time and energy, and secure financial support.



The Friends Bookstore offers a treasure trove of print books, audio books, book bags, magazines, records and other media at nominal prices. Proceeds assist in funding library programs. Friends volunteers manage and staff the store. Already a member? Sign up to volunteer at the store.


Every year, the Friends organizes many events and special programs for and in support of the Birmingham Public Library. Look over our upcoming events and join us at the next one. Then, become a member or renew your membership and help support the organization that does so much for our community.
