Why join the Young Professionals of the Birmingham Public Library? BPL's Young Professionals are concerned with the literary culture of the Birmingham region and are committed to making the library the center of lifelong learning for the city. The Young Professionals will provide opportunities for socializing with like-minded people, plan and enjoy literary-based events and intellectually stimulating programming, and exercise leadership and volunteer skills to benefit the Library through regular social events and an annual signature fund raising event.

Mission: The Young Professionals of the Birmingham Public Library celebrate the rich history and prosperous future of Birmingham's oldest cultural institution. The Young Professionals support the Library financially and culturally and promote its remarkable treasures. By hosting dynamic lectures, special collection tours, and other social events and by volunteering time and skills, the Young Professionals increase public awareness of and access to the Library's resources.

Qualifications: YP Nominees should be true stewards of the library-individuals who are willing to commit time and resources for the benefit of the library system. The library seeks a diverse group of people from various backgrounds and professions who love the library and the creative and thoughtful life that it represents.
