Penn’s Little Village

#PennsLittleVillage at our Langhorne Branch is #BucksCountyFreeLibrary’s first-ever dedicated pre-school-sized early learning town.

According to Village management, aka library staff, the top favorite visitor activities so far are: putting out a recurring imaginary fire in the schoolhouse, which is fortunately located right next door to the firehouse; shopping for groceries in Penny’s Market; and delivering mail from one building to another while wearing postal gear.

Kids are definitely having a lot of fun. But as Fred Rogers wisely said, “… for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”

The Village is open during regular branch hours but closes for cleaning an hour before the library closes. Peak time for visits is usually weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., so avoid these times if you don’t like crowds. Wear comfortable clothing so you can play and learn side-by-side with your child.

We are accepting volunteer applications from those who want to work in the Village. Stop by the Langhorne Branch to find out about opportunities.
