A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

Let’s keep telling ourselves that spring is right around the corner.  The calendar tells us it is March but the weather has different plans.  I actually remember a 4+” snowfall on April 1 when my husband and I picked up a new car from the dealership and drove it home on Route 30 from Devon to Havertown, and it was a manual transmission.  The snow melted the next day and with the storm we are expecting tomorrow, the snow will melt before you know it.  With the Philadelphia Flower Show in full bloom we can dream, can’t we?  

The Library will be closed Thursday, March 5 due to a Township declared Snow Emergency, but we will reopen on Friday-fingers crossed.  Keep warm and safe travels!

Christine D. Faris, Director

MS. ANNY IS LEAVING

Ms. Anny, as she is known to all of the kids who visit the Library and see her at schools, is leaving the Haverford Township Free Library to become a Library Director.  She has worked at Haverford for 9 years bringing exciting programs, materials, and services to the youth of the community.  We are sad to see her go but realize this is an excellent opportunity for her career and wish her good luck and congratulations.  Please stop by the Library anytime on Wednesday, March 11 to celebrate and say goodbye with lemonade and cookies and sign a card for her. 

We also have good news.  Shannon Connor, a librarian who has worked in the Youth Services Department for over 3 years and is currently Assistant Manager, will become the new Youth Services Manager.  Please help us welcome Ms. Shannon to her new role.
