In hard times, libraries are more important than ever. Human beings need what books give them better than any other medium. Since ancient nights around prehistoric campfires, we have needed myth. And heroes. And moral tales. And information about the world beyond the nearest mountains or oceans.

Community Thrift is now selling furniture!
Did you know a portion of the proceeds from The Community Thrift Shop go to the library?
It's true! Please support The Community Thrift Shop at 301 Fourth Street in Pennsburg by shopping or donating clothes and household items. Also, they always need volunteers to sort donations or run the cash register (flexible hours).
Are you the parent, grandparent or caregiver of a child who is not yet in Kindergarten? We have a GREAT program for you and the child in your life...
1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN is a program to help get children exposed to books and story time before they start Kindergarten and to promote reading with children. The more children are exposed to books at home, the more ready they will be for reading & school.
◊ If you read three stories a day, your child will have read over 1,000 books in One Year
It's really simple! All you have to do is...
◊ Register at the Library and pick up your Booklog
◊ Color a picture in the booklog for every book read
◊ Bring the booklog in after you've colored 100 pictures to get a sticker
◊ After you've read 500 books, we will put your name on our "I've Read 500 Books" Wall of Fame
◊ After you've finished 1,000 books, your child will get a plethora of prizes and honors!
This free program has no end date, just try to finish before they begin Kindergarten!
Stop in at the library or call us at 215-679-2020 for more information and to get started!

The book choice for September is Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. New members are always welcome to drop in and join us for an engaging discussion! Copies of the book will be available for pickup at the front desk.
If you are, helping the library is as simple as giving us your receipts. Redner's will donate 1% of all eligible purchases made with a Save-A-Tape card to the library. Receipts must be less than 2 years old. It's a great way to help the library!!
In 2014, your Redner's receipts helped us raise over $900 for the library. Thanks and keep those Redner's Save-A-Tape receipts coming!!
The library has limited parking spaces in the Loft Apartments parking lot located on Bitting Alley. Patrons are to use the spaces on the far right next to the bamboo and the three closest spaces in front of the recycling bin. The other spaces are for residents of the Lofts Apartments. Street parking is available on Main Street. Additional parking for storytimes and special events is available at Bitting and 4th behind First Niagara Bank. The Lofts have been generous with us by covering snow removal and parking lot lighting costs. Please do not park in the apartment spaces.
This is especially important during popular programs in the summer months like Tuesday story time. Please consider our neighbors.
