Bindlestiff at the Franklin Institute

25 Jun

FullSizeRender (1)Our youngest volunteer, Sonja, entered the Franklin Institute’s contest for the best building made with Legos as part of a promotion for their art of the brick exhibit.

Her Bindlestiff Books entry (the first floor of the building, with a cutaway in the roof so you can see the interior, and a rather idealized conception of our back yard, which is actually pretty overgrown) won first place in the 5-10 age bracket and is on display as part of the exhibit (in the gift shop, along with the winner of the above 10 category and a few other pieces). Seeing the exhibit does involve buying a ticket in addition to basic entry; we will display her piece in the store once the exhibition is over.

It looks like this:

late Summer hours

11 Aug

What with vacations, new jobs, resumption of classes, and a slower-than-anticipated process of bringing new volunteers into the schedule, we’re having some trouble covering weekday closing shifts for the next few weeks. So it might make sense to call first (215.662.5780) if you’re coming by after 3:30.

We are open every day at Noon (except Monday, when we open at 1, and close at 6). Closing times are up in the air for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. We will certainly be open later than 3:30 much of the time (and hopefully all the way to our regular closing time at 7 on those days), but not all.

Coverage on Saturdays (Noon – 7), Sundays (Noon – 5), and Mondays (1 – 6), remains solid. But we will be closed on Labor Day.

If you have some free time, especially on weekdays, we could use a couple more volunteers.
