Almost everyday, and sometimes several times a day, I drive down Race Street and pass our humble library. It has looked so tired and sad the past few months, the only flash of color in the landscape was the yellow caution tape barring its front stairs. Unfortunately the library fell victim to one of the many snow storms this past winter, damage was done to the roof and extensive repairs were needed.
After closing its doors over six months ago the Ambler Library is close to being back in business. The library officially opens Monday, September 13 but they have planned a special grand re-opening celebration this coming Sunday, September 12 from 1 – 4 PM. There will be entertainment and refreshments so be sure to bring the kids! Miss Michelle aka the singing librarian will be there, there will be a magic show, a caricaturist will be sketching and a classical music performance will conclude the day. Area families and friends are encouraged to show up to enjoy the festivities and welcome back a good old friend.
The month of September also holds another exciting library associated surprise; many local vendors have graciously agreed to give discounts and deals for patrons who present their library card! This is only for the month of September, so be sure to take advantage of it. You can access the list of participating businesses here.
