Alabama’s Public Libraries Embrace 2010 Year of Small Towns and Downtowns

The Alabama Public Library Service (APLS) and local libraries across the state will celebrate Alabama Tourism’s 2010 Year of Small Towns and Downtowns with a Big Read of “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. “The announcement of the 2010 “Big Read” was made during the quarterly meeting of library administrators held in Montgomery on Oct.16 at the APLS building.
 
Alabama Tourism’s Year of History Coordinator Marilyn Jones Stamps spoke to the group of approximately 200 and shared with them her enthusiasm about the Big Read tie-in.  She also used the opportunity to distribute the recently released “Historic Alabama” brochure, which, as she explained, is a part of the 2009 Year of Alabama History and a lead-in into the Small Towns/Downtowns celebration.  www.alabama.travel

    Let me help you celebrate 2010 The year of the Small Town by doing an old fashioned Community Concert. Audiences of all ages have enjoyed my concerts of song-story-banjo and guitar. Check out my website. http://www.riverboatjohn.net “Riverboat John” Ferguson
