Memories of the JP Branch 

Start the countdown to closure by sharing your memories of the JP Branch, then see them brought to life by the improv True Story Theatre. We can celebrate the old and new as we tell our stories and celebrate the beginning of the library's renovation.

Super Hero Send-Off

On the final day that the Branch is open before the renovation, we plan to send-off the "old" branch with a pack of superheroes.  Come snap a selfie with Superman, Wonder Woman, Spiderman, Captain America or the Incredible Hulk. They'll all be there to say goodbye to the library and give it a SUPER send off.  Hear about plans for the amazing new building we will have in the spring of 2017.

There will be cake and ice cream (ice cream generously donated by our friends  JP Licks and FoMu) as well as other refreshments.  We hope everyone will come say adieu to the JP Branch!

Program partially funded by a grant from the City-Wide Friends of the BPL (with additional funding from the Friends of the JP Branch Library).
