Lives change @ your library: celebrate National Library Week April 13-19

The Haddonfield Public Library is celebrating National Library Week from April 13-19, joining libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in highlighting the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.  The theme this year is Lives change @ your library!

Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study. Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues. 

Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover what their communities needs are and meet them.  Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers or those to support early literacy, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.

The Haddonfield Public Library serves Haddonfield residents, business owners, full time employees and full time students in Haddonfield by providing all types of books (print/ Large Print/ audio and eBooks); a variety of DVDs for pleasure and for learning; Internet and computer services; computer classes; a full service children's department with a wealth of creative programs and early literacy services. The library also serves teens and people with disabilities.

This year the Library Board of Trustees is very pleased to announce that the library's computer systems are being upgraded and will be completed by National Library Week.

"Service to the community has always been the focus of the Haddonfield Library," said Deborah Marchand, President of the Library Board of Trustees. "While this aspect has never changed, libraries have grown and evolved in how they provide for the needs of every member of their community." 

The library is holding these programs during National Library Week :

April 15, 6 - 7 pm: eBooks with Your Library Card
April 16, 11 am to 12 pm or 2 - 3 pm: Job and Career Navigating Online (repeat classes)
April 17, 11 am to 12 pm or 2 - 3 pm: Genealogy Online Tools (repeat classes)

The Children's Department will have Afternoon Adventures on April 16 at 3:30 pm and Easter themed crafts on April 15 and 17. The library will be giving chocolates when you check out!

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 in Haddonfield, NJ, call 856-429-1304 or see the library's website or mobile presence at www.haddonfieldlibrary.org.

Adult Programs

On April 23 at 7 pm, local film historian, Professor Martin Novelli, will give a program on "The Rise and Fall of the American Western."  For nearly seven decades, the American western was the most popular and most prominent genre of film (7,000 plus produced between 1910 and 1970). Tales of the "mythic" west go back to the 19th century dime novels and the exaggerated adventures of figures like Kit Carson, Buffalo Bill, Billy the Kid, and many others. With the coming of film at the end of the 19th century, an insatiable audience for western stories was already in place. And the westerns, first silent, then sounds, first black and white, then in color served this audience both the basic staples and then during the "golden age" of the western between 1939 and 1970, an array of diverse masterpieces memorable to this very day. Then, in the late sixties and on into the 70s and beyond, the western lost its grip on the movie-going public. The western no longer enjoys this popularity. Mr. Novelli is a professor at Ocean County College and is a leading authority on American Westerns. He is the author of The Long Reconstruction: the Post Civil War South in History, Film, and Memory. Mr. Novelli is a local resident and sought after speaker for the library's adult programs. Call 429-1304, ext. 114 to register for this free program, co-sponsored by the Haddonfield Friends of the Library. 

The Adult Book group meets on April 28 at 7 pm. The featured selection is "And the Mountains Echoed" by Hosseini. 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.

Teens, spring into spring with this fun gardening activity. Email Erica at ecoonelly@haddonfieldlibrary.org or visit the library's Facebook page for more information.

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)

First Presbyterian Church

Our Community Joins Forces to Combat Hunger Worldwide

On Saturday, April 12, over 800 volunteers from all around South Jersey will converge on First Presbyterian church in Haddonfield to respond to the plea of countless children who are literally starving to death. Concerned area people of all ages will pack 150,000 meals that will be shipped to malnourished children in 70 developing countries around the world.

The non-profit organization, Feed My Starving Children, will deliver bulk food to the Haddonfield Middle School gym on Lincoln Avenue, behind the church, where the volunteers will pack the food into 6-serving plastic bags that they will then seal and load in boxes for shipping. Last year, 500 local volunteers packed 109,000 meals that were sent to schools and orphanages in remote villages in Swaziland.

Money to pay for the food and supplies was largely raised at a recent Messiah Sing-Along held at Haddonfield Presbyterian, where many singers, accompanied by an orchestra made up of members of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Philly Pops, and students at The Curtis Institute, sang the monumental work that Handel composed to benefit children in an orphanage.

This is an opportunity for people of all ages, from 5 to 95, to make a difference in children’s impoverished lives—over 20,000 children die each day of hunger (that's almost twice the population of Haddonfield, every day!). You are urged to register for a two-hour shift to pack at http://fmsc.org/mobilepack/events. For further information, call 856-354-1718 or email umanpaul@me.com or gerviola@mac.com.

First Presbyterian Church is located at 20 Kings Highway East, one block from the PATCO Hi-Speed Line, in Haddonfield. Parking is available in the large parking lot behind the church.

Auxiliary Police

Mission
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.

Training
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.

Membership
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.

Greenfield Hall was built in 1841 by John Gill IV on property which had been in his family since the early 1700's. The first John Gill had purchased the land from his cousin, Elizabeth Haddon Estaugh, founder of the town, and had erected a farmhouse to the rear of the present structure. John Gill II built another house to replace the farmhouse. This second house served as the Gill residence for the next hundred years until John Gill IV had it razed in order to build a new and grander mansion in anticipation of his second marriage to Elizabeth French of Moorestown, NJ.

Today Greenfield Hall is furnished much as it would have been when the Gills were in residence and contains collections of furniture, needlework, dolls, tool, costumes and early glass and pottery. Next door is the Samuel Mickle House, also known as the Hip Roof House, the oldest house still standing in town. It serves as the Society's research library, open to the public for research purposes. The library is open on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Special appointments may also be made for the library by calling 856-429-7375.

Books and pamphlets have been produced by the Society throughout the years and its Bulletin, published for times a year, contains not only news of the organization bat also interesting accounts of past events and people who lived in the area. Exhibits, special events, celebrations and fundraising activities are held in the mansion during the year.

Both Greenfield Hall and the Samuel Mickle House are included in the New Jersey Register of Historic Places a well as in the National Register.
