Baldwin Library hosting handbag sale

The Friends of Baldwin Public Library are hosting a handbag sale featuring gently used handbags on Sunday, March 24, from 1 to 4 p.m., at the first annual Books, Bags, and Bagels event.

The community is invited to Baldwin Public Library in downtown Birmingham for this inaugural event. Throughout the sale, shoppers are invited to browse gently used handbags and totes priced at $2 and higher. The sale will also offer a collection of used books on women’s topics and by female authors, and bagels and coffee.

“We have been collecting sale items for several months now and are hoping for a great turn out from the community. After last year’s successful sale, we are looking forward to raising even more money for the library,” said LaToya Stroker, event chair.

All proceeds from the sale will support the Friends of the Baldwin Public Library in their ongoing efforts to support programs, services, and the annual summer reading program at the Baldwin Public Library. The Friends donated over $45,000 to the Baldwin Public Library in 2018 after raising money through annual memberships and book sales.

Established in 1950, Friends of the Baldwin Public Library is a non-profit association supporting and enhancing the goals of the library. The Friends of the Baldwin Public Library seek to enrich the community and the Library by encouraging citizens of all ages to enjoy and support the library.
