Programs Coming Soon at the library: (free- call 856-429-1304, ext. 114 to register):
January 11 at 3 pm – Meet the Artists.
The Haddonfield Public Library hosted “Meet the Artists” on Sunday, January 11, 2015 to honor and thank the HMHS student artists responsible for creating a mural that hangs in the Library’s teen room. It will continue to hang in the temporary annex space during the addition/renovation project. 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 the Library campaign. Please purchase a leaf to support the library with renovation costs. Visit the library to purchase a leaf!
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 will be moving to 123 Kings Highway East and opening about May 11. Programs will resume at a later date- watch for announcements!

The children’s dept. is also a great resource. The library staff gives excellent service but Haddonfield needs a far larger library with modern accommodations and flexibility. The collections (books, DVDs, and Books on Tape) are the best in Camden Countyand exceptional for a small town library. The library is the only place in this community that serves all ages and the public space should be expanded and treasured.
