Recent Activities

End of Summer Book Sale

The Friends made a splash with the "End of Summer" book sale August 24th through the 26th. Many people came out and browsed the books for a final summer beach read or new books for the upcoming school year. Once again, the Friends welcomed several new volunteers this month, and they assisted with stocking books, straightening shelves, and providing assistance to our customers.

We are looking forward to our next big book sale and hope to offer one in the fall that would also include jewelry and poinsettias for sale. Stay tuned for more information about this sale in the near future.

Summer Reading Program

Once again, the Summer Reading Program at the Horsham Library was a big success. The program included events for all ages, from STEM activities for teens to Improv Comedy for adults, and Dance Party Story Time for kids and families. The program began on June 16 with a launch party on the new patio and ended on August 11, with the arrival of the Kona Water Ice Truck. Of course, a lot of reading occurred too. People of all ages participated and logged many minutes of reading. As of this writing, reading winners have been notified and will be claiming their prizes soon.

Horsham Day 2023

Horsham Day (or HD23 as it was called) dawned sunny and cool - perfect weather for seeing the sites, eating the delicious food, and talking to the Friends.  The Library unveiled its new logo and provided information on the Summer Reading Program. 

This year the Friends brought back our ping-pong ball game, where people tried to throw ping pong balls in cups. It was harder than it looked, but the prize was a free book (or coupon to select a book from the Library Café sales) and candy. People kept coming back to play the game. We had good crowds all day and provided lots of information. Thanks to all the volunteers who made our booth a success.

Let's Build A Pipe Organ!

Back by popular demand, OrgelKidsPA, working with the Friends of Horsham Library presented this unique, hands-on pipe organ building workshop to children ages 5 and up. Three sessions were offered, and all were full. The children in each session worked together to build a small pipe organ, then play it, and finally take it apart again. The third session also participated in a Zoom meeting with OrgelKidsUSA, and people around the country saw the completed pipe organ played. Thanks to Mr. Vince for bringing us this fascinating experience.
