As Oct. weather cools and, on occasion, turns autumnally soggy, Wissahickon Valley Public Library provides a warm, inviting go-to spot for adults and children alike. Vittoria Woodill, CBS3, found Nora and her sister Ila from Blue Bell and first-grader Cheyenne having mother-daughter bonding time on a recent day off from school.

Cheyenne’s mother said that she’s been going to Wissahickon her whole life.

“For me, as her mom, reading is a big thing,” she said. “I just want to make it fun for her.”

“It’s been a good rainy day,” said Nora and Ila’s mother. “She has off school, she doesn’t usually get time with mom, and we were driving by and they love the computers and the books.”

“Library books are special because they can’t get wet,” said Nora.

Wissahickon Valley Public Library has a location in Blue Bell and a newly renovated branch in Ambler.  

Both sites host myriad events this month, such as Reading to the Dogs, mahjong, tai-chi, beading groups, yoga, meditation, and beginner ESL.
