A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

Plans for Renovation

On the front page of our website we have put a section “Renovation Update” so that you will continue to be informed of the latest news on the renovation.  Of course, you will also be able to see the news here in the HTFL Connection.  Casaccio-Yu Architects has been working diligently with Himmel & Wilson Library Consultants to bring together a comprehensive plan for library materials and spatial needs in the renovated building.  The renovation begins in a year and there is much to plan in the meantime with a lot of fine tuning yet to do to make it an exciting 21st century library.  Stay tuned.

Wishing you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Happy Purim, Happy Spring, and Happy Easter!

 

Christine D. Faris, Director​


LIBRARY CLOSED

BOOK DISCUSSIONS THIS SPRING

Stop by the Reference Desk to register for either or both of the discussions and pick up a copy of the book.  There are a limited number of books available for check out,  so don’t delay!

 

Grandma Gatewood's Walk

Monday,  April 18 — 7:00 pm
Join us in reading the Longwood Garden Community Read selection for 2016, "Grandma Gatewood's Walk", the inspiring story of Emma Gatewood, the first woman to hike the entire Appalachian Trail alone at age 67, as well as the first person to walk it more than once. This is not only a story of the spirit of determination, it is also a personal story of triumph from pain, rebellion from brutality and hope from suffering.

 

Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End

Sunday, April 24 -- 2:00 pm

  • What are your priorities if your time is limited?
  • What are your goals for treatment?
  • What are your fears?
  • And what trade-offs are you willing to accept as a result of your care?

Join us for this important discussion!

Being Mortal by Atul Gawande --Medicine has triumphed in modern times transforming birth, injury, and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable. But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Nursing homes, preoccupied with safety, pin patients into railed beds and wheelchairs. Hospitals isolate the dying, checking for vital signs long after the goals of cure have become moot. Doctors, committed to extending life, continue to carry out devastating procedures that in the end extend suffering.

Full of eye-opening research and riveting storytelling, Being Mortal asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end, providing not only a good life but also a good end.

Coping with Cancer Series

Cancer in the Family:
How to Communicate with Loved Ones

Tuesday, March 29 — 7 pm

Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be traumatic and for many individuals, learning how to ask for help, establishing personal space and boundaries can be challenging. Additionally, family dynamics can be challenged, particularly with children in the home. This lecture looks to help improve family communication, including couples’
communication and ideas for planning for the future. Participants are encouraged to bring questions. This lecture is appropriate for adults; we ask that children not attend.

Treatment is Over, Now What?

Tuesday, April 12 —7 pm

There are resources to describe what to expect during chemotherapy, radiation and surgery but not many to discuss the late effects of cancer treatment. For many individuals, there is an expectation of “getting back to normal” and for many, adjusting to changes can be stressful and emotionally draining. This
lecture looks to shed light on common effects of cancer treatment, resources and coping skills.

Led by Nicole DeCicco and Jessica Perrella, of the Cancer Support Community of Greater Philadelphia.

Did you know?

Facts about the Haverford Township Free Library you may not have known…

  • HTFL has been serving the community of Haverford Township since May 1934.
  • Our first location was in a storefront on Darby Road near the current location.
  • Our second home (1601 Darby Road) was the former Haverford Township Bank Building and that was the Library until a three story addition was constructed in 1979.
  • 2004 Building Study conducted determined infrastructure problems-- some problems were corrected;
  • 2013 Space Utilization Study continued to emphasize the many infrastructure problems asking the question: "Renovate or Relocate?".
  • Board of Trustees recommended Renovation to the Haverford Township Commissioners and the Commissioners committed funding 5.5 million for the Renovation. 
  • The Architect has been hired and we are planning our Renovation.
  • Our current address will be our future address and we will renovate our three (3) story building in 2017!

A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:

Many thanks to those individuals who were able to join us at either or both of our recent events here at HTFL.  The Downton Abbey Tea and Trivia, although scheduled for Sunday, January 24 but held the following week due to the snow storm, was a well-attended event that we have enjoyed bringing to you the last three years. 

One Book One Philadelphia.  What can I say?  A great partnership since 2004 with the Free Library of Philadelphia bringing major authors to the Haverford High School and this Library!   This unique and special event with the Free Library of Philadelphia (FLP), was brought to you through the financial sponsorship with the School District of Haverford Township, the Rotary Club of Havertown, and the Haverford School District Education Foundation is exciting for HTFL.  We sincerely thank all of our partners who make this possible.  This year was no exception.  Author and winner of the National Book Award for Cold Mountain, Charles Frazier was a delightful speaker to anyone who attended. 

Just a couple of examples of the wonderful programming we strive to have for you.  Please attend as many as you can and show your support!

Christine D. Faris, Director​

Reinvent your Job Search

Tuesday, February 9 — 7:00 pm
