Book It 2018

On Saturday, April 7, Helen Kate Furness Library and Swarthmore Public Library invite you to our second 5K Walk/Run to celebrate our libraries and communities! Registration is now open for this fun, community centered event. Register soon for the early bird price of $30!

The point to point course starts at Wallingford train station (a short walk from Helen Kate Furness library) at 9:30AM and ends at Swarthmore Public Library in the town center of Swarthmore. After the race, there will be activities for families and an awards ceremony in Central Park next to the Library. This is a fun event for the whole family!

For some added fun this year, don a crazy hat for the run. It could be a snowman hat, a flamingo beret, or an oversize metallic top hat. Just remember, the sillier the hat, the better! We’ll award a prize to the person wearing the Best Crazy Hat, so bring your “A” game!
