Get to Know Your Library: Did You Know...?

The Jenkintown Library has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979, and it's easy to see why: 

  • Our library entrance is formed from the outlines of the original one-room Lyceum building built in 1839!
  • There's a mile marker from Colonial times that still sits on our lawn; it's one of the only ones left along Old York Road!

As we reflect on the many things we're thankful for this season at Jenkintown Library, we're reminded of the continued generosity of our patrons. Your donations allow us to consistently update our collection with new materials, provide programming for community members of all ages, and to keep our space and resources available to patrons 6 days out of the week from morning to night.

This Tuesday, November 27, 2018, millions of people from around the world will pause to give back to their communities on #GivingTuesday. We hope that you'll consider joining them by making a contribution to our efforts to better serve our community. Every little bit helps.
