The Redbird Song by Edwin Kimbrough

Copyright 1973
Checked out 11 times in 37 years
Last checked out 19 years ago

Though this book has been checked out the same number of times as Joyce Kilmer’s, people have shown no interest in it for almost twenty years. It’s another book of religious poetry and this library doesn’t need any more religious poetry on its shelves (and I can say that confidently even though I’m not even half way through the alphabet). There are a number of worthwhile options to consider for “re-homing” it. Edwin Kimbrough was a minister, serving primarily in Birmingham but with ties here in Albertville. Family in the area could perhaps be contacted and asked if they would like it. It could be given, perhaps on permanent loan, to one of the churches in the area with a library where it has a better chance of being read. Or it could be given to one of the churches in Birmingham over which he presided.
