Social Change Through Action In Pottstown PA

Pottstown Regional Public Library (PRPL) October 26, 2011


Information sent to ROR by Leslie Stillings, Childrens Dept. Librarian!

PrPL smiles for miles and miles and is the place for fun and hands on learning! The Pottstown Regional
Public Library is located at
500 East High Street
Pottstown, Pennsylvania 19464
(610) 970-6551
 Your child learns through play and the youth department understands this, as they offer a
rich environment with plenty of opportunities for social and academic interaction. The library caters to
the needs of infants, toddlers, children, tweens, and teens. Every youth needs a friendly, respectful, and
safe place where they can be themselves and feel comfortable asking questions- and what better place
than the library, where everyone is treated with integrity.

Please visit the youth department and ask abou upcoming events. For infants and toddlers you
can rock out with Mr. Mike’s and Miss Naomi’s guitar filled storytimes or use your hands at Ms. Leslie’s
Song and Sign Language storytime – no experience necessary. Through a generous grant from Target,
the library has partnered with the Gallery on High and High Street Yoga to bring you a phenomenal
combination of yoga, art, and stories. The library takes great pains to create high quality programming
at no cost to our community.

PRPL holds several quality events for children.

Some of their special events coming up for the little ones are a Pinkalicious Party, Mo Willem’s Pigeon
Party, Sleepy Storytime and a very special visit from the famous author/illustrator of “Snow! Snow!
Snow!,  Lee Harper, February 25, from 11-2. You may even get a free copy of the book.

At the end of the month you can go Trick or Treating at the library. Come in anytime on October 31 and
say the secret word, ‘Boooooooks’ and receive a treat. Also don’t forget about the special Halloween
storytime at 10:30 a.m.

If you are already thinking about the winter holidays, be sure to sign up for our Holiday Happening,
Saturday, December 10 from 1-2:30. There will be a kid’s concert, crafts and lots of food.

For the big kids and teenagers there are plenty of opportunities for fun. Come build something with
our endless supply of Legos at the Lego Construction Project, or join in the Video Game Tourneys. Cave
Council is the place to be in order to decide what the library does. In a room all their own (The Cave)
teens plan parties, games, receive first chance to check out new books and more at this important
council. Teens are responsible for making programs such as the ever popular Henna Party, Hip Hop
Dance Performances, and Fear Factor. The special event, Live Action Angry Birds, October 21 at 4pm is
coming very soon, so sign up today.

These are just a sample of the programs at the Pottstown Regional Public Library. There is a
phenomenal list of different activities and experiences offered in the Spring and Summer. Clubs that are
currently forming include Chess Club, Pokémon, and Yu-Gi-Oh. The library is a community resource and
takes a community to make it relevant. If you have any ideas, questions, or concerns walk right up and
ask a librarian, after all that is what they are there for.
