Fall Children’s Programs


We are excited for the season of crisp air, pumpkins, apples, and cozy reading weather to begin! Another reason we are looking forward to fall is that we can’t wait to have you join us for some fun children’s programs, which include the annual outdoor movie night, a couple of interactive educational presentations, family painting, a theatrical trip around the world, and a new book club.

Check out the Fall Children’s 2019 Trifold brochure for details or visit our online calendar for more information and to register for events.

Huge thanks to our sponsors, Lower Moreland Township* and the Friends of Huntingdon Valley Library**, for making many of our fall programs possible.
