The Great Backyard Bird Count

Join us in the Great Backyard Bird Count! The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual, worldwide event that relies on citizen scientists to study global bird populations. Since anyone can be a citizen scientist, you can participate from the comfort of your backyard or wherever you may roam! During the first two weeks of February, stop by the library to check out our awesome books about birds. Pick up a Take-and-Make bird feeder craft, and hang it in your backyard. Visit: to learn more about how you can participate, download tools for identifying birds, and register to help out! Then, February 12th - 15th... count how many birds you see and try to identify them! Don't forget to add your count online. If you would rather not make an account, save your count and bring it to the library to add to our count. In North America, this event is hosted by Cornell Labs, the Audubon Society, and Canada Birds.

Books Take You on Adventures
Spanish Fort Public Library Is Open

The Spanish Fort Public Library opened to the public on Wednesday May 27, 2020. The temporary library hours are Monday through Friday 8 to 4:30 p.m. We are not yet open on Saturdays . Until further notice patrons entering the building will need to enter the main City Hall doors. A temperature check and a CDC approved survey of roughly six questions will be asked before you can visit the building. At this time the computer lab is not open. Printing and scanning are available just not through the computer lab. WiFi is available and library materials are available for checkout. The annual Summer Reading program will still take place this year, but will look a bit different. SFPL will be sending out information about SR2020 in early June. We look forward to seeing you at the library under this new "normal". Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. The book drop is currently open and materials can be dropped off if you do not want to enter the building.
