Easttown Library will be closed on Sunday, Sept. 4th, and Monday, Sept. 5th, for Labor Day weekend.
Changes Coming to Easttown Library Parking Lot
As a result of a request from the Easttown Township Police Department, a change will be made to the Easttown Library parking lot in September. The current exit-only from the parking lot (nearest to Waterloo Ave.) will be closed. Vehicles will need to enter and exit the parking lot using the main access located at the western side of the parking lot. This change is being made to reduce the congestion and enhance the safety of the traffic traveling on the eastern end of First Ave. between the library and Waterloo Ave.
Thank You for Participating in Our Summer Reading Program!
A big thank you to all the kids and teens who participated in our summer reading program "Exercise Your Mind, Read"! Together you read over 1400 hours, volunteered over 400 hours and participated in almost 100 programs here at Easttown Library. While we are sorry to see the summer come to a close, we are excited for what we have coming up in the fall, including coding, sewing, tinkering and of course, more visits from the Franklin Institute. Youth Services programming will resume on Tuesday, September 6th.
We would also like to thank adults who participated in the adult summer reading program, by playing READ Bingo. Fifty-seven completed bingo cards were submitted over the eight week program. Many participants noted that they read books that they might not typically read.
