From Our Youth Librarian!


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.
