Allied Gardens/Benjamin Branch Library
We hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing and fun summer. Our branch opened to in-person service July 6 and that made this a terrific summer for all Benjamin staff. It has been a wonderful thing to see all of you in the library again.
New library hours effective July 31, 2021: Monday and Tuesday 11:30 a.m.-8 p.m. and Wednesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Closed Sundays. All bookdrops are open 24 hours.
September is Library Card Sign Up Month. You can sign up online and then visit the branch to receive your very own library card along with a school supply to start your school year off on the right foot!
Allied Gardens Benjamin Branch has a limited number of hot spots. Need wifi? If you have a SDPL library card in good standing you can borrow a hotspot for 90 days. Get them while they’re hot.
Mrs. Suzanne’s wonderful Outdoor Toddler Storytime will be on Wednesdays beginning Sept. 8 at 10:30 a.m. Please make a note of these changes so you can be sure to be there. Ms. Michelle’s Preschool Storytime is back. Join us Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. outdoors on the grass under the shady trees. Bring your blanket and enjoy stories, singing and rhyming.
Pick up a different fun craft kit each week at the library.
We wish everyone all the best in the new school year! The library has terrific resources to help with your school assignments. Happy reading!
