Update on the library renovation and expansion:

The library anticipates that a bid for construction will be awarded by the Borough of Haddonfield about April 14. Based on the assumption of a successful award of the construction bid, the library plans to close about April 20. The library will be closed for about three weeks while staff sets up an alternative location at 123 Kings Highway for library service in Haddonfield- to open about May 11. Staff will also be preparing the existing library building for occupancy by the general contractor.  The Kings Highway service point will offer borrowing of selected collections in higher demand; computer services and instruction; and some children’s and teen collections. This timetable is subject to change as conditions apply.

Programming for children will be held at Borough Hall in the auditorium during the daytime. Scheduling of adult and teen programs is currently being worked out.  The library will be distributing information about temporary changes in our borrowing policies soon. A special section outlining the changes will be on the library’s website shortly.  The Library Board and Borough Commissioners want to notify the community that these changes are coming soon. The existing library is anticipated to be closed for seven months. 

Residents of Haddonfield will be able to obtain temporary library cards at the Camden County Library system, Cherry Hill Public Library, and the Haddon Heights Public Library during the renovation of the library. These library cards will be in effect during the time of the renovation until the library reopens again. Publicity on these services and information about borrowing will be distributed generally and to library card holders as they check out in Haddonfield. A tag sale of furnishings and equipment will be held at the library about April 25 and 26.  Watch for announcements.   For more information contact Susan Briant, the library director, at 856-429-1304, ext. 7 or email sbriant@haddonfieldlibrary.org

National Library Week is April 12-19!

Unlimited possibilities @ your library: celebrate National Library Week April 12-19
Haddonfield Public Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers. 
The Haddonfield Public Library is celebrating National Library Week with a fine free week from April 13-19. Bring in your late books/ DVDs and other items, no matter how late. Fines will be waived. The fine free week  applies only to late items, not lost items- replacement costs are still due on any lost items.

The library is also collecting stories on how the library has changed or improved your life. You can submit these to the library and they will be posted on Facebook, or tweet us your story @HaddonfieldLib using the hashtag #LoveHaddonfieldLib. Stop in and share your story and enjoy a treat!

The library will also create a Pinterest board of your recommendations of what you have read, watched or listened to. Your picks will be shared during National Library Week on Pinterest. Look for the recommendation boxes for your submissions at the circulation desks!

Back issues of library magazines will be available for free on a first come, first served basis, beginning about April 6 and will continue through National Library Week as supplies last!

Libraries today are more than warehouses for books. Instead, libraries and librarians are change agents within their communities - transforming lives through innovative educational resources and forward-thinking programming. Libraries are doing their part to close the digital divide and level the playing field by providing free access to information and technologies that many in their communities would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.  Libraries help to ensure the American dream and promote democracy by providing service to all regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or socio-economic status. 

Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover and meet the needs of their communities.  Whether through offering e-books and technology classes,  programs for job seekers or offering a fun environment for children and teens to learn, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.

The Haddonfield Public Library serves our community by providing full services of lending a variety of materials, including print, eBooks and downloadable music, movies and audiobooks; extensive programming for children; computer access and instruction; and more. Customizing service to people’s needs, such as assistance with tax forms and medical information, is available.

“The library has always been a place of unlimited possibilities,” said Gene Kain, Library Board Vice-President and Haddonfield’s Citizen of the Year for 2015. “Whatever your interest or need, the library and the library staff are here to provide you the resources you need to accomplish your goals and dreams.”

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. 

For more information, visit the Haddonfield Public Library at 60 Haddon Avenue, call 856-429-1304 or see the library’s Web site or mobile presence at www.haddonfieldlibrary.org.  Library hours are: Monday- Thursday from 10 am to 9 pm; Friday 10 am to 6 pm; Saturday 10 am to 5 pm; and Sunday from 1-5 pm.

Buy a Leaf to support the “We Love Our Library” Campaign at HPL
The HPL Library Board of Trustees has begun the “We Love Our Library” campaign to provide fund raising for the library’s long awaited expansion and renovation. The library is slated to be expanded by a 2000 square feet addition on Tanner St in 2015. 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 an alternative site.  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 at the top of the stairs on the first floor of the library. Donations are being accepted from $5 to $250. Check with the library staff at the first floor circulation desk. Donations above $250 will be permanently honored in the library after completion of the renovation, anticipated to be seven months after construction begins!

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

General programs:

The Adult Book group has been rescheduled to the earlier date of April 13 at 7 pm.  The featured selection is “How the Light Gets in” by Louise Penny.  New members are welcome. For more information, contact Kathleen Metrick at 429-1304, ext. 116 or email her at kmetrick@haddonfieldlibrary.org  Light refreshments will be served.
Children’s, Adult, and Teen library programming will stop temporarily about mid April and resume in June.

The Friends of the Library’s annual program is Wednesday, April 29 at 7 pm.  Join us for our Annual Meeting and enjoy a discussion with Maureen Fitzgerald. She has been a journalist with the Philadelphia Inquirer for the past 30 years, and has served as the Food Editor for the past ten. In 2011, she started the blog My Daughter’s Kitchen with her daughter, Sally, to encourage her to cook healthier meals. A year later, Maureen started teaching a group of students to cook at a school in North Philadelphia. With the encouragement and participation of readers, this program has grown to 20 classes, with 40 volunteers teaching at schools in Philadelphia and Camden this spring. The mission remains the same: To teach kids to cook easy, healthy inexpensive meals on a budget. Fitzgerald has lived in Haddonfield, with her husband Michael Vitez, since 1986. They raised three children here, Timmy, Sally and Jonathan.
Join the Friends at the Markeim Arts Center, Lincoln and Walnut Avenue in Haddonfield.
Light refreshments will be served.  New members are always welcome and can join the evening of the event. For more information visit www.hfol.org
The Library Board of Trustees will meet on April 28 at 8 am. The location of the meeting will be announced. The public is welcome to attend. 
The Library Board will meet on these dates in 2015:
   April 28, May 26, June 23, July 28, Sept. 22, Oct. 27, Nov. 24, and Dec. 15.
Tax Information: the library has a small selection of free federal tax forms for distribution (1040, 1040A and 1040 EZ.) No instructional booklets are available for free distribution this year. The library will assist with downloading forms for both the federal and NJ taxes at a cost of .15 a page. For more information visit www.irs.gov or the State of NJ Treasury website.

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)

In honor of its 100th anniversary the Historical Society of Haddonfield is pleased to announce "A Walk through History: Then and Now". This exciting partnership with downtown Haddonfield will feature many merchants who have volunteered to turn their store fronts into exhibit cases in order to showcase artifacts from the Society alongside modern day items. Come see Earthenware pottery and bone handled steel flatware from the 1700's in the window of A Taste of Olive. Have you ever seen a Wood & Bone shaving brush from 1775? Then swing by MirAno's Barber Shop. The event kicks off May 1 and lasts throughout the month. Every week will feature new, fun and exciting exhibits at many shops including Jay West, The Polished Plate, The Little Shop, Hooked, and many, many more. Come visit with us as you stroll through Haddonfield and help the Society celebrate 100 years of preserving History.
