You are cordially invited to

a book discussion over tea 

Monday, March 11, 2024 at 6:30pm

Norristown Public Library Community Room

Hats optional – Registration required

We are reading The Last Garden in England by Julia Kelly. This novel explores the lives of five women over 3 generations connected by one garden.  Fans of Downton Abbey are likely to enjoy it. Since the author was inspired by the gardens of English country houses, we felt a tea party would be appropriate.  A few lucky readers will win a copy of the book or free passes to Longwood Gardens. This event is part of the Longwood Gardens Community Reads program. Space is limited.

RSVP to Jeanne at JCove@mclinc.org or 610-278-5100 x400, or tell the circulation staff next time you are checking out at the library.

Build tolerance and understanding by conversing with your neighbors.  This friendly group does not seek to persuade, but to understand.  All are welcome, but respect is paramount.  Topics are chosen by the group.  Here are some examples:

  • If it were possible, would you want to be immortal?
  • Will artificial intelligence be a plus or minus for humanity?
  • What is a just war?
  • Ambition, is it a virtue or a vice?
  • Which is more important? Individual freedom or the common good?
  • Are college campuses handling free speech appropriately?

New meeting time!  Every 2nd Friday of the month from 2-4pm. No registration necessary, just drop in! If you’d like advance notice of topics email Jeanne at JCove@mclinc.org.

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.
