Do we have your email address?

The Delaware County Library System and the Haverford Township Free Library have transitioned to email notifications for reminders about items approaching their due date, overdue items, and the arrival of items that you have ordered from HTFL or another library.

What are the advantages? 

  • $AVING$!  Staff time, postage, paper, toner, and envelopes. 
  • CONVENIENCE!  You receive an email immediately when your library materials are ready for pick up.

Meet Our Staff - Fran

A constantly smiling face you’ll see behind the circulation desk belongs to Fran. She has been there for about 20 years (We do let her out for good behavior).

She enjoys working with the public and helping them find just the books they want. She loves seeing the regulars as well as meeting new people.

Her hobbies include reading mysteries, cook books, magazines and newspapers, browsing the internet, politics, and cooking, although she also loves going out to eat.

Fran has a grown daughter.
