PROGRAMS FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN

Adults and Young Adults--Interested in stories from Birmingham's past? Enjoy sharing memories of the 'not so long ago' of the area?  Always wanted to find out more about cultural curiosities and unique attributes of the city, and where they came from? Then our adult lecture series is something you should check out.  It is an increasingly popular event that brings out the best in local history and the people who made Birmingham special. The Birmingham Museum provides this seasonal series of adult lectures each spring and fall in partnership with the Baldwin Public Library.  Local historians, museum staff, authors, and other knowledgeable presenters share their passion for the fascinating topics and stories that will have you wondering what is next.  Presentations are free and take place at the library;  interested participants are asked to please register online at the library calendar at www.baldwinlib.org/calendar.  

Crop IMG_0115For Youngsters and their Families--we have a children's storytime program here at the museum on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m.  Co-sponsored by the Baldwin Public Library, a children's librarian engages audiences in a seasonal theme with great reads from the library's children's collection. Held either in the historic Hunter House or in the Allen House at the Birmingham Museum, the program is a delightful way for families to enjoy time together in a quiet museum environment. These programs are free and open to the public, but please register online at the Baldwin Library website: www.baldwinlib.org/storytime Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.  For more information, contact Caitlin Donnelly at the Birmingham Museum at 248-530-1685, or cdonnelly@bhamgov.org.
