Let’s bake together, in our own kitchens!  Get a jump start on your holiday cookie baking this year as we host Kathy from Kitchen Wizards and work with her to make two different cookie recipes. Recipes TBA soon!

This class is aimed at adults as the primary participants, but kids are welcome to join in as helpers. Kathy recommends that helpers be mature and engaged in the process and she finds that 8 years old is usually a good minimum age.

Class size is limited to 20 households. We will reach out with an ingredient and supply list and the Zoom link a few days before the class. Register HERE.

Questions? Contact us at 610-825-1656 or smason@mclinc.org.

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?

Join the challenge at http://mcnpl.beanstack.org!

PORCH PICK-UP: By request whenever staff are in!


  1. Limited Number of patrons inside the library at any given time.  Only 8 patrons can be in the library at a time. If people are waiting for a turn to come in the library, we may ask you to wrap up your visit.
  2. Masks are required.  We ask everyone over the age of 2 to wear a mask when entering the library.  Please wear the mask over both your nose and mouth and keep it on throughout your visit.  Library staff are wearing masks as well.  If you forget a mask, we can offer you a disposable paper mask.  If you are unable to wear a mask, please consider taking advantage of our porch pick up service—we are committed to helping our patrons get access to library materials in the safest manner possible.
  3. Hand sanitizer is available at the library for patron and staff use.  Please use hand sanitizer upon entering the building, and again as often as needed.
  4. Please follow social distancing guidelines while in the library.  Our passageways between shelves are small and should only be visited by one patron at a time. If library staff ask you to wait until an area is clear, please cooperate.
  5. Keeping the library clean.  The library is being visited by cleaning staff two times per week.  In addition, library staff wipe down frequently touched surfaces at least once per day (e.g.: doorknobs, photocopier and elevator buttons, checkout counters).  Please protect yourself and help us keep these public spaces clean by washing your hands thoroughly and using hand sanitizer.
  6. Use of Public Computers.  These are available for public use by appointment only for 45-minute periods.  Please call the library to make your appointment.  Generally, priority is given to patrons who have not had a prior chance to use a computer in any given week.  Workstations, including keyboard covers, chairs, etc., are wiped down between patron appointments.
  7. Use of Bathrooms.  Bathrooms are available for patron use. Please wash your hands thoroughly and take advantage of our hand sanitizer after using the bathroom.
  8. Returning materials. We prefer materials to be returned via our outside book return box, which always will be open for returns.  Returns will be quarantined for at least 72 hours before being checked in.  During this time, they will remain on your account. We will waive any fines that might accrue during the quarantine period.

We can’t wait to see you at the library!
