At the moment that we persuade a child, any child, to cross that threshold into a library, we change their lives forever, for the better.

Are you the parent, grandparent or caregiver of a child who is not yet in Kindergarten? We have a GREAT program for you and the child in your life...
1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN is a program to help get children exposed to books and story time before they start Kindergarten and to promote reading with children. The more children are exposed to books at home, the more ready they will be for reading & school.
◊ If you read three stories a day, your child will have read over 1,000 books in One Year
It's really simple! All you have to do is...
◊ Register at the Library and pick up your Booklog
◊ Color a picture in the booklog for every book read
◊ Bring the booklog in after you've colored 100 pictures to get a sticker
◊ After you've read 500 books, we will put your name on our "I've Read 500 Books" Wall of Fame
◊ After you've finished 1,000 books, your child will get a plethora of prizes and honors!
This free program has no end date, just try to finish before they begin Kindergarten!
Stop in at the library or call us at 215-679-2020 for more information and to get started!
Did you know a portion of the proceeds from The Community Thrift Shop go to the library?
It's true! Their profits are shared by the library, The Open Link, The Community Life Center in East Greenville, and RSVP (a local volunteer clearinghouse). Please support The Community Thrift Shop now at 301 Fourth Street in Pennsburg by shopping or donating clothes and household items. They can also use volunteers to sort donations or run the cash register.
If you are, helping the library is as simple as giving us your receipts. Redner's will donate 1% of all eligible purchases made with a Save-A-Tape card to the library. Receipts must be less than 2 years old. It's a great way to help the library!!
In 2014, your Redner's receipts helped us raise over $900 for the library. Thanks and keep those Redner's Save-A-Tape receipts coming!!
