Greetings from the Haddonfield Public Library Director
Hello and welcome to the Haddonfield Public Library. The story of public libraries is that they serve the general public and provide equal access to education for all people. They have a long history of serving people to fulfill their dreams of better education, lifelong learning, recreational reading, and to enhance the quality of life.
Over the past twenty five years, libraries have streamlined their operations to include lots of computing, programming for all ages of the population, early childhood literacy assistance, and much more. Over the past several years our library has added many new services. If you take a few minutes to look over our web page, you will see cultural programs for adults; teen and children’s programs, new collections, technologies, computer classes, and more.
Our strength is customizing services to our customers. Since reopening the renovated library, our community and visitors have found their way back and are finding their favorite places to work, read, sit, and enjoy! We want to know more about how we can help you, so please do not hesitate to speak with me or one of our staff.
New technology can be daunting as well as exciting. We strive to acquire the new tools and resources that you need or want to learn about and we will offer instruction for these specialized resources. Our professional librarians are on duty to help! Make an appointment to suit your schedule.
2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the ground-breaking and start of construction of the library at 60 N. Haddon Avenue. We’re delighted to be able to showcase the renovated library during this important anniversary year. On behalf of the Library Board of Trustees, our staff, and the Haddonfield Friends of the Library, thank you for your support and continuous use!
