​​Come Join a Student Celebration of O.V. Catto on May 7, 2018, 9:30 am – 2 pm at Philadelphia City Hall. At the age of 16, O.V. Catto began “speaking up” about the issues of his day that concerned him. This year, the School District of Philadelphia and a group of cultural and education partners in collaboration with the Catto Memorial Fund, produced the first O.V. Catto education initiative. This initiative trained 90 educators at 52 schools and brought the story Catto and American Civil Rights into their classrooms reaching over 11,200 students! At this event there will be a representative group of these students speak about their education journey and Catto at City Hall with Mayor Kenney. Mural Arts is also providing a “Paint Day” in the City Hall Courtyard for the new Catto Mural that will be installed in the fall at Universal Institute Charter (Broad and Catherine). For more information about the Catto Memorial Fund, see their website here: http://www.ovcattomemorial.org/

Facial hair tips from Philly's best bearded men

“I just let it grow pretty naturally. I feel like the super-grooming routines are anti-having the beard. I do go to a barber — Burke & Payne at Ninth and Fitzwater — and get it trimmed up every four to six weeks. Finding someone who will help you shape it correctly is wise.”

Happy birthday to William Shakespeare, who is believed to have been born on or around this day in 1564. We've brought a few works out of the vault for the occasion, but we do wonder what he would have thought of our ca. 1893 copy of "The Family Shakspeare [sic], " edited by Thomas Bowdler, "in which nothing is added to the original text, but those words and expressions are omitted which cannot with propriety be read in a family."

Factors to Consider Before Applying for a Loan

A loan of any amount is never to be taken for granted. The fact remains that you will have to pay it back with interest. With an economy that is not stable, it is becoming impossible to do without a loan. Experts at Instant Lolly, a 24 month loans provider based in the United Kingdom argues that if you must apply for one, there are some things that you should know first. Do ample research on the things to consider before applying for a loan. This will make it easier to know what to do and what to avoid at all costs.
