Drinking together has been a tradition for thousands of years, and we have found a way to keep that tradition alive! Grab your favorite beverage, log on, and let us be your designated driver as you virtually explore how our ancestors partied like it was 5000 BCE. Participants will follow along as we check out one of the most popular ancient Greek drinking games (you should definitely try this at home), zoom in on one of the world’s oldest wine jars, learn about a Mesopotamian queen who drank her beer out of a straw, and learn all about the science that went into recreating the beverage served at the funerary feast hosted by King Midas. All the while you will be encouraged to participate in fun and interactive games that test your knowledge and invite you to share some of your most memorable drinking stories. While there is no formal beer tasting, we encourage you to bring your favorite beverage and drink along with us!

  • Monday, March 15 from 7:00-8:30 pm

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!
