Great news! Walnut St. West library has reopened!
While closed, stalwart library staff members took shifts to process book returns from the drop-boxes which were emptied daily as well as hundreds of books on hold with no a/c. (Phew!) Reserved books previously relocated to Kingsessing branch were also returned to Walnut St. West, so it may take longer to locate your reserved book with the extra volume. Library staff expect to be accommodating with late fees or other issues influenced by the branch closing.
BIG THANKS to Bruce Siebers, branch manager, coordinating tirelessly at many levels to get the doors open ASAP, the Friends' Bucket Brigade for keeping the library gardens watered, and the good neighbors who helped update our community beyond this listserv & subscription emails!
Kathy Wheeler, President Friends of Walnut St West Library
We are halfway toward our $110,000 fundraising goal and will continue to raise money throughout the year, much needed as seen by the closings due to a/c issues.... Stay tuned and happy Summer!
