A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

I had the opportunity to attend the Pennsylvania Library Association conference in Lancaster earlier this week and can tell you that libraries continue to be at the forefront of education for every age. 

The PA Forward movement in libraries continues to empower communities through the literacy initiatives.  HTFL addresses these five literacies each and every day through materials, technology and programs.  Take advantage of all that we have to offer YOU!

Thank you to all of the Commissioners of the Township of Haverford for committing funds to renovate or relocate the Library (yet to be determined, but not at Darby and Manoa Roads with the Police and Township Building). 

On behalf of the Staff and Board of Trustees of HTFL, I wish all of our Jewish friends L’Shanah Tovah and to have an easy fast. 

 

Christine D. Faris, Director

A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

Tick…Tick…Tick...summer vacations are ending.  The tent and sleeping bags are getting packed away, the travel brochures are going out to the recycling bin and pictures are being uploaded to social media.  I hope everyone got a little “R & R” during the summer and feel refreshed and ready for fall season, although I can’t say we suffered from the heat this summer.   We were lucky!  The kids will be back in school in two weeks.  But, we have one more last hurrah and good bye to summer--Labor Day.  Why do we celebrate Labor Day?  According to Wikipedia, “It is a celebration of the American Labor movement.”  Click here to view the history.  The Library will be closed on Labor Day and we will resume Sunday hours on September 7. 

Things to look forward to in September—The Haverford Music Festival, Haverford Township Free Library’s (HTFL) Chili Cook Off, Friends of HTFL Annual Book Sale, HTFL Business Breakfast, and Haverford Township Day and all in one month!  It’s great to live in Haverford Township!

 

Christine D. Faris, Director

A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

I hope you are like me and many others who feel that Haverford Township is an exciting place to live, work and visit.  The Township has so much to offer -- a healthy and safe environment in a stable community with good restaurants, parks, recreation, places of worship, schools, lovely homes, historical buildings, festivals, a responsive police department, a government that cares, and a GREAT Library.  I could go on and on. 

I am so proud of our Library for what we provide in our community thanks to our hard working, talented, and caring staff.  They concentrate on YOU and your needs each and every day.  Please allow me to thank them publicly for all that they do.

Summer Reading Club is coming to a close next week.  Make sure you get your final reading selections in as soon as possible.  Students-don’t forget your summer reading list for school assignments.  Let us help you find the books you need.

Enjoy the waning summer.  It just goes too fast!
