Welcome Zoey

A Note from Director Chris Kibler

Please join me in welcoming Zoey Mills to Tredyffrin Public Library as our new Community Outreach and Adult Programs Librarian.

Zoey began working part time at Tredyffrin Public Library’s Reference Desk in 2016. She has worked in the Chester County Library System since 2015. She obtained a Master of Science in Library and Information Science degree from Drexel University and will be leaving her position as Head of Programming and Library Services at J. Lewis Crozer Library in the Delaware County Library System to join the charismatic librarians, staff, and volunteers of Tredyffrin Township Libraries.

Zoey’s first day will be July 8th, 2019 – just in time for the Wednesday, July 10th Wednesday re-opening. Welcome Zoey!

Share Your Story

We need you to share your story

Mother and Child enjoy ice cream in the libraryEvery year the libraries put together a booklet to share with our local legislators highlighting how libraries have affected the lives of individuals in the community. This helps our law makers make informed decisions on supporting increased funding for libraries across the state. You can help! We’re not asking for your money (though donations are always appreciated), but we need your stories!

Help us provide a personal snapshot of how vital we are to the Tredyffrin community by submitting a story or quote about “how your library is changing your life or family.” Additionally, we would love to have an image of you or your family in the library or using a library resource.

Libraries Transform

  • Has the library provided a life-changing experience for you or a family member?
  • Is there a resource or service that you recently found out the library offers that made a significant impact in your daily or weekly routine?
  • Has an experience at the library left a lasting impression?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, let us know your story! We want to hear from you. As a small thank you for your support, patrons who provide a story and a picture will receive one free month of rentals at Tredyffrin Township Libraries.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Different Seasons

Join Read It & Steep as we explore the Stephen King classic Different Seasons for book club. The discussion will revolve around the novella “The Body” and participants are invited to explore one of the other three novellas in the collection: “Apt Pupil,” “The Breathing Method,” or “Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption.”

While the book club meets on Tuesday, April 16 at 7 pm, everyone is also invited to a special screening of Stand By Me, the film adaptation of “The Body” on Tuesday, April 23. Please register to attend.

In the meantime, enjoy a little Stephen King word search and don’t forget that Pet Sematary is in theatres now.
