Library Sponsorship

HTFL offers local and national organizations the opportunity to become an annual sponsor. Sponsorship is a great way to grow your organization and demonstrate your commitment to education and the services the library provides. Sponsors in the past have benefited greatly from their relationship with the Library. 


You can create a legacy to help ensure the Library will be enjoyed for generations to come. This can be done by including the Haverford Township Free Library in your will or estate plan.

A simple bequest can be included easily in your will when it is written or revised. Your charitable bequest, which is fully deductible from your gross estate, will benefit the entire community.

For more information on making an estate gift to the Haverford Township Free library, please contact Christine Faris, Director, at 610-446-3082, extension 213 or send an inquiry to her attention at 1601 Darby Road, Havertown, PA 19083.

Support the Library and the Environment

Bring your used ink jet, toner cartridges, and old cell phones to the library for recycling. We belong to a program that not only recycles the cartridges and phones but pays us a certain amount, depending upon brands and quantities. Every little bit helps the library and the planet.

Improper disposal of e-waste harms our environment by damaging air, soil and water, and takes up ever-increasing space in our landfills. Ink jet cartridges, toner cartridges and cell phones contain substances that are potentially hazardous to humans and animals. So, bring them to us and feel good about supporting both the library and the environment.

Donation of Gently Used Materials

The library greatly appreciates book donations and other items of value.  Donated items are evaluated according to the same criteria as purchased materials, and are only accepted with the explicit understanding that they may be retained, discarded and used at the discretion of library staff and the Friends of the Library.

Criteria for acceptance of book donations

Materials should not be left outside the library or placed in the book drop.  Please bring all donations into the library to the circulation desk.  

Contact the library in person, by phone at 610-446-3082, or by email at

if you have questions about items you are considering donating to the library and if you have more than one bag or box of books to donate.
