Coming Up at the Free Library in Frankford

Greetings and a happy holiday season to all!

See below for Frankford Neighborhood Library’s upcoming Winter Programs:

For Teens
Teen Trivia Contest – Black History!
Tweens and teens, ages 12 to 19, are welcome to participate in our trivia contest.  The subject is Black History and teens will battle for cool prizes.  No registration required.

For Teens
Letter to My Father Literacy Workshops
Tina Smith Brown, creator of Letter2myFather, believes that relationship (or lack of relationship) with our fathers fundamentally impacts the direction of our lives. She also believes that any resulting misdirection can be effectively redirected through careful, critical and conscientious examination of self in light of that relationship. Through her very mobile, go-anywhere  literary workshops she lays a foundation for teens to effectively begin the process of self-examination that leads to healing and celebration!

LEAP operates from September to June at all Free Library neighborhood libraries and Parkway Central Library, and Tuesday-Friday in the three regional libraries.

The library has been without a Children’s Liberian for over a year. We hope to welcome our new Children’s Library on staff in the coming months. I am sure s/he will be eager to offer preschool and school –age programs once settled. If and when additions and/or changes arise, I will be sure to update you all.

Many holiday wishes and blessings!
