We’ve had a hawk visitor at the library all week. The courtyard seems to have become his own personal buffet. Make sure you try to spot him if visiting the library!

A reminder- Today and tomorrow The Free Library of Philadelphia will be performing maintenance on our library catalog. Most services will remain available. You will still be able to search the catalog, check out and return library materials, renew your books online or in person, pay fines, use library computers and our wi-fi, and use electronic resources like Overdrive, Kanopy, and Hoopla. However, during these two days, you will not be able to place holds, sign up for a new library card, or use our automated telephone renewal service. There will also be a short period after 9 p.m. on Tuesday that The Free Library catalog will be completely unavailable. Regular library operations expect to resume by Wednesday morning, December 6. Thank you for your patience!

    Fox Chase Library
    The Fox Chase area was originally settled by Swedes who sailed up the Pennypack Creek around 1645 and built a blockhouse as protection against the Lenni Lenape Indians. English colonists later took over the settlement and the blockhouse, which became part of a large country residence named the Ury House.

    Lawncrest residents suspicious of utility worker scam
    A man posing as a utility worker may be targeting unsuspecting homeowners. A family got him on camera this weekend. The man claimed to be with PECO and needed to get inside the home of a Lawncrest mother. "I believe he was trying to get in my home and to harm me and my family," she told FOX 29.

    What do you do when you're facing a restless night? Watch television? Get some work done? Well, if you're Twitter user Colin Carlson, you spend the night rating all the different kinds of foxes. Which there are a lot of, by the way. It all started with the red fox, a classic in the fox world.
