Current Library Status

Coronavirus Disease 2019 CDC Badge

Due to the Coronavirus restrictions set forth by Governor Wolf, the Jenkintown Library is currently CLOSED. Upon entering the Green Phase, we have been working diligently to be able to open the building to the public. Our Book Drop will remain open for returns. Curbside pickup continues for existing holds. Patrons should contact the library to arrange a time to pick up their materials after receiving an email notification that they have arrived.

We Support Black Lives Matter

Being an inclusive and welcoming place for our community, as well as championing everyone’s right to intellectual freedom are amongst the Core Values that guide the Jenkintown Library in all we do. As we are excitedly preparing to open our doors again, we are ever mindful of our Mission to educate, connect and create community. For too long, our country has been divided, inequities have grown and misunderstanding has flourished. The books shown here are a few from our collection that may offer a path towards healing these wounds and knitting us back together. May we all emerge from the turmoil 2020 has wrought with a greater understanding and appreciation of one another, honoring the unique experience of each while recognizing the interconnectedness of us all.
