Yesterday morning, the Notebook staff, with the help of professional movers, took all of our earthly belongings from our old offices in East Falls and moved to our new home in Center City. For its entire 19-year history, the Notebook has been housed at a location operated by Resources for Human Development. We have many fond memories of our years in the East Falls office, but we outgrew the space and wanted a home of our own.
And here's where we landed.
We're at Seventh and Ranstead Streets, and we're excited to be in the same building as Philadelphia Community Access Media (PhillyCAM), the nonprofit organization that runs the city's public access television network. Our move places us closer to City Hall and the School District's headquarters, so that our staff can continue its coverage of the schools even more easily.
Our site and email addresses, of course, remain the same. We will have a new phone number in September, but for now, you can reach us at our old number: 215-951-0330, x2107. Our new mailing address is as follows:
Philadelphia Public School Notebook
699 Ranstead St.
Philadelphia, PA 19106
We will be holding an open house for our members and supporters in October to show off our new space. But before then, there are a number of items that we still need to stock our office. If any of our readers have any of these items that they are willing to donate, we would be most grateful! Please send an email to Neeta Patel if you would like to donate any of these items:
- Coffee maker
- Microwave oven
- Small toolbox
- Large trash can with wheels and lid
- Small waste baskets
- Small paper recycling baskets
- Two-drawer vertical file cabinets
- First-aid kit
- 1 small storage cabinet / shelf for the break room
