Libraries have and do amazing things—they give everyone a chance to explore their passions and become their best selves through media, resources, lifelong learning, and more. In honor of our 2018 Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chairs, the Incredibles, we want to know: what makes your library incredible?

Share your answer using text, photos, or a short video on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #MyLibraryIsIncredible. Entries can also be posted directly to the I Love Libraries Facebook page. One randomly selected winner will receive a VISA gift card worth $100. 

Help spread the word.

The Barn & Blanket Players Presented The Truly True Story of the 3 Little Pigs

The Barn & Blanket theatre camp offered by Pulley & Buttonhole Theatre Company at Jenkintown Library closed with a performance of an original play created by the campers. Over 2 weeks, Siobhan Beauchamp, Violet Duffey, Tiernan Fitzpatrick, Niamh Montroy and Lilly Santee brainstormed the plot, made posters, and built set and costume pieces, assisted by Declan Beauchamp and Maggie Farr. Bridget Reilly Beauchamp, Artistic Director of PBTC, explains that the object of the camp is, “to show the kids that you don’t need fancy production values to make theatre—all you need is a space and a story.” Thank you to everyone who participated.

Pulley & Buttonhole Theatre Company is Jenkintown’s only year-round performing arts organization. Next up is a “pay what you will” performance of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at Abington Art Center on August 6-9. Their 2018-2019 season, "Outside US: Seeing the World through Global Eyes" opens with A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde in October. Season passes are available now.
