    In early June 2018, City Council approved the first round of sites for Rebuild! Here's what that means and why that's important.

person walking trying to open all automobiles doors which are left unlocked.

There's a man walking down 7500 block of Limekiln Pike and he's checking all doors to your automobiles to see if they were left unlocked. 2 people have had things taken from their automobiles due to their own negligence. He's a petty thief who takes cartons of water and paper towels toilet paper and any change you may have in your car. He even took handicapped placards left in the glove compartment.Please take a moment and lock your doors.He goes from car to car. I witnessed him doing this but he moves quickly.

Free Library of Pride For the second year, the Free Library of Philadelphia is going all out for Pride, with neary 50 LGBTQ-related events at its more than 20 branches. “The Free Library of Pride program is really driven by librarians, and the the librarians are really responding to the needs that they see from their patrons,” says Andrew Nurkin, head of the Free Library’s Center for Public Life. That means events for all ages, ranging from the scholarly to the silly. Here are a few highlights and the entire lineup of events: https://libwww.freelibrary.org/calendar/main/home/page/1/terms/free-library-of-pride

    Celebrate Pride Month by returning to its roots
    June is Pride Month, which means celebrations of the LGBTQ community all month long, including the 30th annual Philadelphia Pride Parade this weekend. Pride has become synonymous with rainbow flags, day drinking, and glitter, but it began with the riots at the Stonewall Inn in 1969 and was fueled by decades of activism - raising awareness about AIDS, agitating for equal rights and marriage equality.

Herbicides at Carpenters Woods

I live across the street from Carpenter's Woods, along the Thumb.

I find it curious that, to contain invasive plants at Carpenter's Woods, an herbicide is sprayed whose active ingredient, triclopyr acid, offers "mild toxicity to birds" and which kills non-invasive plants, while killing and/or toxifying the berries that surround the Thumb, that birds eat.

Last summer three little signs were posted at the Thumb which were not sufficient to warn my landlady, her dog, and myself that walking the sidewalk might cause irritation to skin or eyes. Both of which happened.

Perhaps others were affected, too.

As an ecologist who has taught at two universities, I am not yet convinced that destroying invasives at the perimeter of this park is of greater benefit to biodiversity here than the damage that may be caused to birds, berries, and people here.

While there are many different formats these days - it looks like traditional books may be best for some children.

    What's Going On In Your Child's Brain When You Read Them A Story?
    "I want The Three Bears!" These days parents, caregivers and teachers have lots of options when it comes to fulfilling that request. You can read a picture book, put on a cartoon, play an audiobook, or even ask Alexa. A newly published study gives some insight into what may be happening inside young children's brains in each of those situations.

    Why Philly's crumbling libraries aren't just libraries anymore | Mike Newall
    In a 103-year-old library in Southwest Philadelphia, where the roof is leaky, the windows are drafty, and the heating and cooling system is as finicky as an old crank, three men sat under dull lights at a bank of computers, trying to land a job.
