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.

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.

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.
