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. The expansion will provide an elevator and handicapped accessible bathrooms. The library’s interior will also be reconfigured for complete handicapped accessibility. The library is closed through the end of 2015 and is currently operating 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. The Library Board has been charged with paying 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. The tree is at the annex at 123 Kings Highway. Donations are being accepted from $5 to $250. Check with the library staff at the 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!
