Jenkintown Library

Mission

The mission of the Jenkintown Library is to promote reading and the free expression of ideas; to actively support the community's educational, cultural, business and technology information needs; and to manage and preserve the library's historical legacy.

 

The Bookstore

Hundreds of gently used fiction and nonfiction books have been donated to Jenkintown Library to sell in The Bookstore. There are also children's and teen books as well as CDs and DVDs. All are reasonably priced at $1 for hardbacks, CDs, DVDs, and 25 cents for paperbacks.
