Celebrate National Library Week – April 23-29
National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities.
The Huntingdon Valley Library is full of stories in a variety of formats from picture books to large print, audiobooks to eBooks, and more. But there’s so much more to our story. Library of Things lend items like museum passes, games, hotspots and much more coming soon. Friends of the Library provides us quality services and programming to our patrons. Library programming brings communities together for entertainment, education, and connection through book clubs, storytimes, movie matinees, and lectures. Library infrastructure advances communities, providing internet and technology access, literacy skills, and support for businesses, job seekers, and entrepreneurs.
If you love our library, help us make some noise during National Library Week. There’s never been a more important moment to show your support.
During this week, please consider making a donation to our library.
