A note from the Director:

It is time, once again, to make your voices heard to the State legislators to preserve level funding for Pennsylvania’s libraries for the 2013-2014 budget.  Governor Tom Corbett has proposed preliminary level funding, and we need to take action now to help ensure that it happens. 

Studies indicate that libraries are busier today than ever and we cannot afford to lose any additional funding.  Libraries paid the price in budget cuts amounting to 34% in the last several years, and the next year’s budget represents the first time since 2007 that we may be on an even keel with our funding.  Send your message to Harrisburg today!  Facebook your legislators with your email, Governor Tom Corbett, Senator Daylin Leach and Representative Greg Vitali, or Click here to help us save our funding and I thank you for your support.

Christine Faris, Library Director

A note from the Director:

 

This past week the Haverford Township Free Library and libraries across the nation celebrated National Library Week.  We have had many special events to highlight the unique role libraries play in people’s lives. Today’s libraries can help you and your family discover a new and exciting world through library collections, digital resources, programs and so much more.  Libraries are a great place to spend quality time and connect with loved ones, friends, neighbors, school mates, and business associates to name just a few.

Caroline Kennedy is the honorary chairperson for this special week and is an advocate for reading, literacy and libraries.  She has written or edited ten bestselling books on American history, politics and poetry. Her latest book is Poems to Learn by Heart.  

National Library Week can also be a time to reflect upon how libraries, and in particular the Haverford Township Free Library, have helped you.  Has our library been able to assist you with your education, a job search, or research?  Has it been a place for you to use the internet, attend a program, send your teen to afterschool programs or offer homeschooling tools?  Please take a moment to share your story with me. It is so important to my staff and me to know so we can continue to provide you with even more resources!  My email address is faris@haverfordlibrary.org

SPOTLIGHT ON LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS

Rotary Club of Haverford Township

The Rotary Club of Haverford Township was chartered in 1981. They  are a network of inspired individuals who translate our passions into relevant social causes to help change lives.  The Rotary is involved in both meaningful community as well as international service projects.  It is their hope to help make the community they live and work in a better place and to help those less fortunate than themselves.    Internationally, they take action to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.

As Rotarians they have continually adapted and improved the way they respond to those needs, taking on a broad range of service projects. 

The most successful and sustainable Rotary service tends to fall within one of the following six areas:

  • Peace & conflict prevention/resolution
  • Disease prevention and treatment
  • Water & Sanitation
  • Maternal  & child health
  • Basic education & literacy
  • Economic & community development

A note from the Director:

 

Five years ago HTFL embarked on a new adventure of programming-the Murder Mystery Dinner.  Mary Lou Kolowitz, Reference Department Manager had attended a Murder Mystery weekend and came back with the idea and adapted it to make it the Library’s own.  Talented writer, director and actor, Dave Griffith has, again this year, written the script for the newest production, Death and Circumstances.  Don’t miss the opportunity for a good laugh, a little irreverence and a lot of FUN!  Get your tickets TODAY-they are selling fast.

 

Christine Faris, Library Director

 


LIBRARY CLOSED

HTFL will be closed on Thursday, April 18

COLLECTIONS CORNER

There are also materials for speakers of English as a second language.
