The library is open on these days:   October 12, and November 3, 11, and 27, and Dec. 31 from 10 am to 1 pm.

Update on the library renovation and expansion:

  The 2000 square foot addition on Tanner St. is under construction. The addition will house an elevator and handicapped accessible bathrooms. The library has an annex at 123 Kings Highway East.  The Kings Highway service point offers borrowing of selected collections in higher demand; computer services and instruction; and some children’s and teen collections. The library’s book drops have moved to behind 123 Kings Highway. There is also a mail and book slot on the front door.  As parking is tight, you may want to walk to the book drops. The library is next to the Haddonfield Running Company and the English Gardener Shop. 

Programming for children is being held at Borough Hall in the auditorium during the daytime.   Visit the library or our website at www.haddonfieldlibrary.org for updates!  The Library Board and Borough Commissioners want to keep the community updated throughout the renovation project. The existing library is anticipated to be closed for seven months or to reopen in the first quarter of 2016. 

Residents of Haddonfield may obtain temporary library cards at the Camden County Library system, Cherry Hill Public Library, and the Haddon Heights Public Library. These library cards will be in effect during the time of the renovation. Haddonfield residents should take photo-identification to these libraries to obtain temporary library cards.   For more information contact Susan Briant, the library director, at 856-429-1304, ext. 7 or email sbriant@haddonfieldlibrary.org

Buy a Leaf to support the “We Love Our Library” Campaign at HPL
The HPL Library Board of Trustees launched the “We Love Our Library” campaign to provide fund raising for the library’s long awaited expansion and renovation. The library will be expanded by a 2000 square feet addition on Tanner St.  The expansion will provide an elevator and handicapped accessible bathrooms.  The library’s interior will also be reconfigured for complete handicapped accessibility. The library will be closed for about seven months and operate at 123 Kings Highway East.  The renovation will also provide an opportunity to modernize the library to serve Haddonfield residents in the 21st century.

The Library Board is partnering with the Borough of Haddonfield to upgrade the library. The Borough Commissioners will pay for the improvements that will make the library handicapped accessible, as well as some building upgrades such as a new roof, heating renovation, etc. The Library Board is conducting the campaign to pay for enhancements to the building to allow it to operate as a 21st century library. This will include a vastly improved children’s dept. with better programming space and room for children to explore and learn in a fun, creative area. The library will also have a larger meeting room equipped with new technology; a distinct teen area; collaborative study spaces, and browsing spaces for the community to delight in the library’s collections. Creating a place for community connection is a vital part of the renovation.

Toward that end the Library Board has launched the “We Love Our Library” campaign. The campaign will raise funds for the enhancements, such as contemporary furnishings, equipment, and newer technology throughout the building. You can help by buying a leaf on the tree mural created by HMHS National Honor Society members. Student Event Coordinator, Abby Czernieckiis, led the National Art Honor Society on the project along with NAHS Supervisor, Allie Westerside.  The mural will act as a donor recognition element and a spark igniting the We Love Our Library campaign. 

The tree is located at the library annex at 123 Kings Highway East. Donations are being accepted from $5 to $250. Check with the library staff at the annex. Donations above $250 will be permanently honored in the library after completion of the renovation.
For more information visit www.haddonfieldlibrary.org or contact the library director, Susan Briant at 856-429-1304, ext. 7 or at sbriant@haddonfieldlibrary.org

Gratitude Brings Blessings--

Haddonfield United Methodist Church

The Haddonfield United Methodist Church, since its inception in 1829, has grown from a gathering of a few in the Grove Schoolhouse to a congregation of over 2000 in our fifth and present home at 29 Warwick Road. Our members come from 57 towns in South Jersey. We have survived an earthquake and several fires, yet after each disaster we emerge stronger than before. We are a big church with a small church friendliness. We sponsor activities for all ages and have dozens of ways of serving from missions, ministries, choirs, small group study, and more. Our new addition was completed in 2008 and has enabled us to expand our ministry with new classrooms for Christian education, a beautiful music suite and new reception and welcome center. In 2009 we celebrated more than 180 years of Christian fellowship and worshipping God in the Methodist tradition established by John Wesley over 250 years ago. Because we believe that one size doesn't fit all, HUMC provides four Worship Services each weekend.

  • Saturdays at 5 p.m. in the chapel (casual service)
  • Sundays at 8 a.m. in the chapel (traditional service)
  • Sundays at 9 a.m. in the sanctuary (contemporary service)
  • Sundays at 10:15 a.m. in the sanctuary (traditional service)

Auxiliary Police

Haddonfield Auxiliary Police Officers are trained, non-paid volunteers, whose mission is to augment the Haddonfield Police Department. Their ranks include moms and dads, business owners and executives, and other Borough residents who are committed to making a safer community. In 2007 the Auxiliary Police were honored with the Alfred E. Driscoll Award for outstanding community service. Each year Auxiliary Officers provide almost 1,000 hours of volunteer service. They function as court bailiffs, and direct traffic at town events such as Fire Prevention Night and the Fall Festival. Members also provide crowd control at high school football and basketball games, numerous parades and 1st Night Celebration. Auxiliary Officers also carry out uniformed, foot and bicycle patrol in the business district during Candle Light Shopping; summer-time Friday night concerts; and furnish security for the summer Craft Fair. Auxiliary Officers are trained to respond to local emergencies, natural disasters and assist the Camden County Fire Police.

Meetings Open to the Public
Auxiliary members meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30PM in the Haddonfield Court Room. All Borough residents are invited to attend.

Various training seminars are conducted by qualified members of the Haddonfield Police Department. Some officers take optional classes at the Camden County Police Academy. All officers are instructed in basic law enforcement protocol, radio communications, police vehicle operations, self defense, and baton and pepper spray tactics. Officers also remain current with their first-aid and CPR certifications.

Members are expected to provide eight combined hours of service/training per month. In order to become an Auxiliary Officer you must be 18 years of age, have graduated high-school, be physically able to perform the duties of an Auxiliary Police Officer, and pass a background check. The Chief of Police has final say in appointing Auxiliary Officers. If you are interested in becoming an Auxiliary Police Officer, talk to any of our members, visit us at one of our meetings, or contact Community Police Officer, Lt. Ted Stuessy at 856-429-4700 ext. 240.
