Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts: World-Class Concerts in Center City

October 28, 2014 12:27 pm

Walk through the doors and experience the grandeur of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, located along the Avenue of the Arts in Center City. Home to the Philadelphia Orchestra, a number of performances are presented almost nightly here and might include the Pennsylvania Ballet, Peter Nero and the Philly Pops, French Circus, a jazz quartet, or family-friendly events.

The main stage in Verizon Hall features 2,500 elegant red mahogany seats with adjustable acoustical panels and is shaped like a cello. The Center also features the smaller 650-seat Perelman Theater with a rotating stage—ideal for chamber music, dance, and drama. The Center's acoustics are state-of-the-art, and the top floors of the building offer breathtaking views of the city. The PECO Cafe, tucked inside the Commonwealth Plaza (which surrounds the performances stages), offers coffee and light snacks.

Take Learning to a New Level at Doylestown District Center Library

October 21, 2014 2:55 pm

Most libraries offers thousands of books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs for residents to enjoy free of charge. So what sets one library apart from others? The programming! Special educational events are exactly what makes the Doylestown District Center Library so special.

The Doylestown District Center Library offers regular story time and singalongs—but what other library lets you meet and greet reptiles? If alligators aren’t for you, stop by with the kids for Discovery Garden. Summer is also a great time for kids to explore their artistic sides. Be sure to bring them over for the weekly Art Lab.

Doylestown District Center Library inspires learning, curiosity, and creativity. You can stop by any day of the week. Check the website for library hours and the events calendar.
