Virtual Tours of Birmingham Libraries


I just noticed this button at the bottom of the Birmingham Public Library site, which links to a webpage full of mini-video tours of the central downtown branch and five of the Birmingham branches.It’s powered by Alabama360.com, so you have the ability to zoom, pause, pan and tilt.

Some of the older tours are powered by MapWing which pinpoints still images rather than allowing you to pan through a panoramic shot.

The Linn Henley Research Library tours don’t do the murals justice. It’s just one of those things best seen in person.

Alabama Author Expo

The Alabama Author Expo is tomorrow Saturday, April 12th at Vulcan Park. I’m not sure why they scheduled it for the same day as Alabama Bound, but there will be a handful of authors there and a special kids area.

These authors are slated to be there for signings: Jo Kittinger, Jim Lowe, Charles Ghigna, Kathy McCoy, Roger Reid, J.D. Weeks, Aileen Henderson, Anne Weston, Darden North, Edie Hand 

The event is slated to run from 11am-3pm with a Q&A with the authors starting at 2pm.
