Looking for something to do with family or visiting friends?  Explore some popular local attractions thanks to the Friends of the Library!  Join the Friends group for $10 per year, and you can borrow any of their passes as often as you like all year long.  Each pass can be borrowed for 3 days, allows you to bring multiple people along with you, and may even give you discounted purchases at the venue.  You cannot place holds on these passes, but you can always call the circulation desk at the library to see if they are available.
Currently, we have the following passes available to borrow from our circulation desk:
  • Elmwood Park Zoo (admits up to 2 adults and 6 children)
  • John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove (admits up to 2 adults and 4 children)
  • Woodmere Art Museum (admits up to 2 adults and 4 children).

We now have mobile printing!  You can send documents to our library’s printer from anywhere and  then come to the library to pick-up and pay for your documents.  Printing is only in black and white, and is 15 cents per page.

Items stay in our printer queue for 72 hours only–if you don’t come get them within that time period, they will be deleted from our system.

There are three ways that you can send prints to our system:

If you need help requesting books that would be a good fit for your students, try using our form.  Once we know the subject you are interested in and the reading level of the intended audience, we can do the work of placing requests and find the best books to fit your needs!

What a great way to get your child ready for Kindergarten, and for a lifetime of enjoying books!  If you read just one book a day with your child, that’s 365 books in a year.  Before you and your child know it, you’ll have 1,000 books read.  

Conshohocken Free Library and MCNPL have a program designed to help for families with kids up to age 5 (or Kindergarten age) keep track of their reading.  Register for the challenge at http://mcnpl.beanstack.org, and then log your books.  This is the same platform we used for the Summer Reading Program online this year, and it’s really easy to use.  You can log your reading on a computer or through the app on a mobile device. And YES, repeat reads count!  

 
Your child will reach milestones when you read 1 book, 25 books, 100 books, 250 books, 500 books, and 1,000 books.  Once you reach each milestone, come visit us at the Conshohocken Free Library for a special reward.  Conshy Kids who read the most books will have their names featured on a Wall of Fame at the library!  
 
We already have a few names for our wall–will the next one be YOURS?
