We held our annual June Jazz fundraiser on Tuesday, July 6, 2023. Twenty-six organizations and individuals sponsored the fundraiser, and turnout was terrific! Our wonderful hosts at von C Brewing Company made everyone feel welcome, and the Taco Truck by Lumbrada Express got rave reviews! The Kool Kats, formerly known as the N Town Band, delivered the smooth, upbeat jazz that our supporters ask for year after year.

Proceeds raised by June Jazz support the Library’s materials budget, placing books and other media straight into the hands, homes, and minds of the Montgomery County families we serve. We are deeply grateful to the following organizations and individuals for generously sponsoring June Jazz.

This is the body text in Verdana.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

Lorem Ipsum was popularized in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Libraries are moving PA Forward! Pennsylvania’s libraries are community centers of information, technology, and learning that fuel educational and economic opportunity for all citizens.

Pennsylvania’s libraries promote the essential literacies people need to meet life’s demands, and reach their greatest potential. And now, through the “#PAForward” initiative, libraries across the Commonwealth are speaking with one voice to highlight the ways in which they foster literacy. The Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library is proud to join this effort.

MC-NPL promotes literacy with our collection and our programs and events. Our offerings promote the five literacies that are the backbone of PA Forward: Basic Literacy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy, Health Literacy and Financial Literacy. By promoting essential literacies, libraries are powering a better future for everyone.  Literacy is power, and libraries–including MC-NPL–are moving PA Forward!
