Please join Art Matthews in a discussion of his book, Historical Commemoration of the Black in Blue. The book is a collection of photos and articles that commemorate some of the accomplishments of African Americans in law enforcement; primarily in the Philadelphia Police Department. Mr. Matthews has researched the ten-year campaign (from 1871 to 1881) by the African American citizens of the historic 7th Ward, to hire African Americans as police officers. Copies of the book will be available. Thursday, May 17, 2018 6:30 P.M.

Toddler storytime this morning featured "My Cousin Momo", the Pennsylvania One Book Every Young Child title for 2018. We followed the story with a craft that gave the children an opportunity to explore creating and positive self-expression.
Come be inspired at your neighborhood library too!
Star Party Friday evening April 20, 2018 was awesome. We had two astronomers bring their professional telescopes. We saw the moon’s surface in great detail. We also saw Venus and the Big Dipper. Thank you to astronomers Jerry, Mike and Robbin. To all who attended it was a night to remember. I heard one of our young attendees say he never liked science before until now.
