Bridgeport 5k
Sep 22 @ 7:30 am – 12:30 pm

The Borough of Bridgeport is very excited to announce that we will be hosting our 3rd Annual Bridgeport 5K. The Bridgeport 5K will have two beneficiaries this year – the Montgomery County Hero Fund and the ALS Association. Once again, we will welcome runners throughout the region to “test their skills on our hills” and join us in supporting two wonderful charities.

The 2019 Bridgeport 5K will include a 5K run/walk, a Kids Fun Run, live entertainment and race ceremony. This event will be staged outdoors in Bridgeport. Registration will begin at 7:30 am, the 5K will commence at 9:00 am, and the Kids Run Fun will start after the 5K has concluded. Additionally, in honor of the involvement of the Montgomery County Hero Fund this year, we are encouraging participants to dress up as their favorite hero! Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, so whether your Hero is Captain America, a Police Officer, a Firefighter, or your Grandfather, show your spirit and compete as your favorite Hero! Costumes are optional, not required.

Fall 2019 Used Book Sale at the Library

It’s that time again!

Time for the semi-annual Friends of the Library USED BOOK SALE

WHEN?
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 21      10 AM-3 PM

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 22              1 PM -3 PM

WHERE?
The William Jeanes Memorial Library and Nicholas and Athena Karabots Center for Learning is located at 4051 Joshua Road in Lafayette Hill, PA 19444, between Flourtown Road and Germantown Pike. The building is fully-accessible with off-street parking. The Book Sale is held in the Willaman Community Commons on the lower level.

Arrive early on Saturday for the best selection! Regular shoppers line up before the doors open.

CASH ONLY!

TEACHERS! The Friends received a generous donation of educational supplement materials – three (3) boxes of supplemental reading materials for your perusal!

Thousands of thoughtfully sorted titles, including books, DVDs and CDs, will be available at bargain prices — 25¢, 50¢, $1, and up.

Special items, such as antiquarian and first editions, are priced separately.

Now is the time to start shopping for your holiday gift-giving.

Each semi-annual Friends book sale opens with a fresh assortment of items waiting to be plucked and placed in your home library; any remaining inventory is donated to worthy organizations.

On Sunday, the Friends offer a “Fill Your Bag” option; bring your own grocery-size bag, and for $5, you can fill it to the brim; not all remaining items are included in the bag sale.

Please, do not call the Library to ask about items as this sale is organized by the Friends of the Library volunteer group; you will have to wait until 10 am on Saturday, September 21!

YOU CAN HELP! because their book room is overflowing….the Friends of the Library have no room left for books! The Friends have asked that the public hold book donations as of August 30 to give them the time to organize the collection in preparation for the sale. The Friends will resume accepting book donations as of October 6. Friends appreciate the community’s understanding and cooperation.

The Friends of the William Jeanes Memorial Library sponsors the Book Sale. The Friends, a separate nonprofit organization, donates funds to supplement the William Jeanes Memorial Library programs and services and makes gifts that enhance the building and grounds.

The Friends is an all-volunteer organization that invites your participation and membership. For further information, check the library’s website, visit www.jeaneslibrary.org, and be sure to visit the Friends page once you’re there. The “Friends” page can be accessed from the drop-down MENU on the top left corner of the library website homepage.
