construction

ATTENTION, PATRONS! WE'RE RENOVATING! 

The Jenkintown Library has two projects in the works! Firstly, we're taking measures to repair our basement so we can get our bookstore back up and running! Secondly, we're performing construction on our Vista Road entrance, including a new doorway and book drop, additional handicapped parking, and a coffee bar!

We appreciate your patience as we undergo these exciting changes.

Stay tuned for updates!
