Winter Reading Challenge: December 15, 2017 through February 28, 2018 Beginning December 15, 2017, the Free Library will host an all ages online Winter Reading Challenge. The program encourages participants to continue reading all winter long, and also provides ideas for other fun activities. How do I sign-up? Visit https://freelibrary.beanstack.org on or after December 15 to sign-up. If you already have a Beanstack account, you simply need to sign-in and then register for the 2018 Winter Reading Challenge for your age group. How does the program work? Earn points and badges for reading and doing activities this winter! For every 100 minutes you read, you will earn 100 points. Activities earn 100 points as well. There are suggested point-based goals for each age group, or you can make your own goal! Is there a prize? Yes! For every 100 points you earn, you will receive 1 entry into a raffle for a mystery fun pack! One mystery fun pack will be given out for each age group. Winners will be contacted by March 15, 2018.

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!

    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.
