Borrowing

Jenkintown Library is open to the public, and anyone with an ACCESS PA library card can borrow from our collection. Jenkintown borrower’s cards are free and available to residents of Jenkintown Borough, as well as to those who work in the borough. Each card comes with an ACCESS PA sticker, which enables cardholders to borrow materials at public libraries throughout Pennsylvania. If you have a card from another library that is part of ACCESS PA, you can borrow materials from Jenkintown Library.
