Libraries all over Philadelphia and the suburbs are encouraging patrons to read one same book. The author will be in Haverford on Tuesday.
The One Book, One Philadelphia reading project is in its eleventh year. Think of it as a giant regional book club that asks members to read just one book per year. This year that book is The Buddha in The Attic. Its author is Julie Otsuka and she will be spending the day in Haverford on Tuesday. According to the Haverford Township Free Library website, the schedule of events is as follows:

A library program could be the answer to getting old ink cartridges and cell phones out of your house without heading for the dump.
When it’s time for a new ink cartridge in your printer, what do you do with the old one? What do you do with your old cell phone? You can drop them both off at the Haverford Township Library. It will keep them out of the landfills and it will help raise a little money for your library. Library Director Christine Faris says the printer ink and cell phone project isn’t a huge money maker, but every little bit helps and the great thing is that it gives the community a place to recycle those items. The collection boxes are to the right when you walk into the library in Havertown. The recycling program goes through CC Cash.

The Haverford Township Library is providing resources for small businesses.
More than 80 professionals and officials got an early start on their day at the Haverford Township Library Wednesday morning. They came out for a breakfast with a side of networking and information sharing. Participants had the opportunity to talk to businesses, including Haverford-Havertown Patch, about getting their businesses online. This is the second year for the event. It will be followed by five workshops aimed at helping small businesses with their online needs. The first workshop, on Oct. 4 will be run by Brian Mattocks, from RentaSmartGuy.com, on taking your business online.
