Summer at HTFL

When you think of summer what thoughts do you have?  Do you think of it as the slow time of year where you kick back, enjoy the sun, vacation, or take time for yourself?  For many people that is true, but for the library and staff it is further from the truth.  We have been busier than ever!  Summer Reading Clubs, which will come to a close at the end of this week, check outs of materials and check ins have been keeping staff busy all summer, and we hope that we have entertained and enlightened you in some way.
I was so delighted to hear of someone who came into the library comment on the energy that surrounds the building, staff and programs.  We attempt to do that every day, and we hope we have done that for you.  
If we have entertained you, educated you or gave you a cool place to "be" this summer, then we accomplished our goals.  Over 800 people on average visited the library each day and, in fact, some days we had over 1200!  Please consider a gift of acknowledgement by giving to our annual appeal with a tax deductible gift.  You can give online or in person.  Help us help YOU!
Thank you.  Enjoy the rest of the summer.

My child came home from school talking about Summer Reading at the library... what is this?!

2011's Summer Reading program for children birth through those entering 5th grade will begin Monday, June 20th at HTFL. Ms. Anny is visiting Haverford Township schools to let students know what's happening at the library - so you might hear about her visit from our little ones!

Summer is a time to relax and have fun and the Summer Reading program at HTFL is designed to help keep kids reading and visiting the library throughout their vacation!

Great Programs

Laurel, New Jersey, who attended Swarthmore College and the University of Pennsylvania for her Ph.D.; she was directly involved in the movement to fight for equal rights for women, and most significantly, a woman's right to VOTE.

Saturday, March 12 at 2pm--experience Native American Indians in full dress with live music and stories;  this is truly a program for ALL AGES!

Sunday, March 13 at 2pm--a facilitator from the Alice Paul Institute in New Jersey will be here to conduct a Mother/Daughter Leadership Program-registration suggested.

Thank you so much for supporting our programs through your attendance and annual appeal donation. 

At the Haverford Township Free Library, we are so much more than books.........
