  The Free Library of Philadelphia and Mt. Olive Lodge #27 Prince Hall Affiliated Masons collaborated on an outreach program at the Interim House West during the holiday season on Saturday Dec. 20 of last year. Interim House West Inc. is a residential shelter for substance or domestic abuse mothers & their children located at 4108 Parkside Ave, Philadelphia, Pa.



The Free Library of Philadelphia staff members provided a book for every child at the shelter. DeBose & Holmes set up a display table with the Free Library of Philadelphia promotional material. They also discussed with the shelter staff & residents the different services that the library provides and also offer to return to the Interim House for story time in the future.
