Jenkintown Library


Welcome to Jenkintown Library, a special place for Jenkintown residents. Offering a rich history of service and commitment, the library features a wealth of information and materials, best sellers, and up-to-date technology.


#GivingTuesday – November 29, 2016

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. It is a campaign started to help make our holiday gift giving more meaningful by encouraging donations to great causes on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving each year.

We hope you’ll be part of this global effort! Read large print? A gift of $25 or more will help the library build its large print collection. Or, please consider donating to the library’s technology fund to help purchase 3 new public computers and software.


Celebrate the fact that you made a difference to Jenkintown Library and to all those in the community who love and benefit from our resources, collections, and programs.
