The Friends of the Kingsessing Library with heavy hearts announce the imminent transfer of our wonderful children's librarian, Ms. Kim Robinson, who has also been our acting head librarian for several months. We are very concerned about the future of the Kingsessing Branch Library due to continual understaffing, Saturday closures and a recent mid-week closure. Look for the announcement of a community meeting.

    Emmett Till's case has been reopened. His brutal death in 1955 put a spotlight on racial violence.
    The federal government is once again investigating the brutal slaying of Emmett Till, a black teenager whose 1955 lynching put a spotlight on racial violence and galvanized the U.S. civil rights movement. The Justice Department told Congress in a report submitted in March that it has reopened the investigation into Till's death "after receiving new information."
