Radnor Memorial Library, along with its partners Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens, Radnor Conservancy, and Radnor Historical Society, invites you to a lecture to be presented at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens.

Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden will open to the public in the spring of 2018. We are so grateful that Ethan Kauffman, the new Director of Stoneleigh, will be taking time at the end of his busy workday to give us a preview of this stately addition to Natural Lands preserves.

AT THE ORIGINAL GRYPHON CAFE IN WAYNE

Welcome to Cookbook Club.

With a visit to Radnor Library, you can look at The Enchilada Queen Cookbook by Sylvia Casares, select a recipe you’d like to prepare, and then bring it to the Wayne Senior Center on September 14 @ 6:30PM. Since many others will have done the same, it becomes more than a delicious meal…it’s a banquet! And of course, there are all the comments on the recipes –making for some stimulating conversation throughout the evening.

Found some photos!

Here are some photos from 2016 and 2017 events. Enjoy!

I have always thought that it’s photos that help me to mark the passing of time. And so does this blog. And both of them, together? Well, they remind me of how much fun we have cross-pollinating with other organizations, in and around Radnor Township, year after year.

Since Radnor Memorial Library has been closed for a very big renovation, we have asked our friends and neighbors to help us out with hosting events– that would otherwise not take place.

I am very grateful and would like to thank Jim Doling at the Radnor Township building, Joe and Ginny Maguire at the Radnor Fire Company, Dr. Harold Sweetman at Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens, Tessa Downs and our friends at Wayne Art Center, Rich Mattis of The Gryphon Cafe, and Susan Shapiro and Katie Redmond at The Wayne Senior Center.
