Current Library Status

The Jenkintown Library is OPEN! Thank you for your encouragement and support during these difficult times. As a community, we will have to adjust to a new normal: Jenkintown Library will have temporary hours of operation, limited service, and only a limited number of people will be allowed in the building at once. We are currently offering curbside passport service by appointment only, 215-884-0593. Any patron entering the building is REQUIRED to wear a mask. For more questions, check out our FAQ page.

Enjoy the StoryWalk Organized by The Parenthood Village of East MontCo!

The Jenkintown Library is thrilled to support the StoryWalk organized by The Parenthood Village of East MontCo! Enjoy Airlie Anderson's picture book "Cat's Colors" by visiting participating businesses along the StoryWalk route (pictured below).

To complement this wonderful activity, our Youth Services Librarian has recorded a reading of the story here. We will also be offering Grab and Go craft kits each week of September to enhance the StoryWalk experience! Our first kit: Make your own Cat Ears! Collect colors with your feline friend as you walk through Jenkintown Borough. For each color you and cat find while reading "Cat's Colors" on your StoryWalk, add a 'dot' (colored sticker) to your headband just like cat does for her fur! All supplies included except glue and scissors.

We have a limited supply of kits available so you must register in advance to pick one up at the library. You can pick up a kit between now and Friday during the library's open hours.

Community Story Hour + Community-Wide Scavenger Hunt

Our Community Story Hour continues! As a sneak peek to the story, along with a fun community-wide scavenger hunt, you can put a dog in your window or draw one with sidewalk chalk! Let’s show everyone that we are in this together. Tomorrow morning, during what would have been our usual Story Hour at the Jenkintown Library, we will send out the link. Be sure to sign up today to receive the link.
