The Annual Pottstown Family Fest will be held on Wednesday, March 12, from 5-7 p.m. at Pottstown Senior High School, 750 North Washington Street, Pottstown.
This free family-focused event will feature information/resources from more than 30 area organizations, activities for the entire family, roving entertainment, mini sandwiches, drinks, Rita’s water ice, and a variety of door prizes. Informational booths will be open from 5-7 p.m. Door prizes will be awarded at 7 p.m. (must be present to win). Children must be accompanied by an adult.
“Family Fest was developed to enhance, celebrate and explore family dynamics, development, growth, and unity,” said Jenn Brown, director, Pottstown Family Center. “This year’s theme, Stay Healthy, Play More, focuses on buying local and encourages families to find volunteer opportunities they care about so they can ultimately give back to their community.”

Pottstown is fortunate to have a great public library with lots of programs and activities for children and families. Our families use the the library’s services to look for jobs and improve their literacy skills in addition to utilizing all of the great resources.
Pottstown Regional Public Library is facing possible funding cuts which could greatly impact library services to our community’s youth. Please help support the library by stopping by to sign their petition, sending hand drawn or written letters from children telling how they use the library or providing personal testimonies about the role the library plays in your life.
You can also attend the next meeting of the Lower Pottsgrove Township Commissioners. It will be held January 23 at 6:45 at the Lower Pottstgrove Township Building (2199 Buchert Road, Pottstown).
Please help support Pottstown’s library. If you have questions about the library services, contact Leslie Stillings, Director of Youth Services, at 610-970-6551. As Leslie commented, “It is our duty to provide resources, opportunities for learning, enlightening experiences, and literacy skills. Libraries are an integral component in our modern society; libraries are some of the only places that both uplifts the disenfranchised and provides cutting edge electronic resources for the community.”
Let’s continue the great services provided by the Pottstown Regional Public Library!
