A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

With all of the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it is a good time to personally sit and reflect on accomplishments during the year 2014, and focus on goals and promises for 2015.  The Board of Trustees and Staff of HTFL are no different.  The Staff, in particular, has been thinking of new library collections and programs, new library services, and new ways to connect with you.  I am always interested in your thoughts and suggestions.   Please email me at faris@haverfordlibrary.org.

From all of us at the Haverford Township Free Library to all of you, I wish you the happiest of holidays-Merry Christmas and a peaceful, safe and prosperous New Year!

 

Christine D. Faris, Director

 


THE WINTER GIVE

Make your tax deductible donation before year's end!

 


AND THE WINNER IS...

The Haverford Township Free Library won first place for the most creative window display in the township!  The Haverford Partnership for Economic Development sponsored a contest for best window displays in several categories and the judges really loved our recycled book snowman and winter scene created by staff members Hannah, Michele and Patti.

Stop by and take a look at our window at the corner of Darby and Mill Roads because you have the opportunity to vote for the "People's Choice" award from among the 12 winners selected by the panel of judges.  Please visit the HPED website at www.HPED.org to view the winning windows between December 17th and 31st to vote for your favorite.
