The Haddonfield Friends of the Library, through memberships and our annual book sale, provides special gifts that contribute to the excellence of library services. These gifts are a supplement to, not a substitute for, the library’s regular operating budget. Some of the many gifts given by the Friends include books and other library materials, furnishings, audio-visual supplies and equipment.
In June 2013, The Haddonfield Friends of the Library was honored with the 2013 New Jersey Library Association (NJLA) Library Service Award for its continuing support and financial donations to the Haddonfield Public Library.Pictured from Left to right are Rich Cunliffe, Susan Briant (Library Director), Phil Shapiro (President), Kristin Redmond, Susan Reed (Vice President) accepting the award at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City.
The mission of the Haddonfield Friends of the Library is to preserve and strengthen the Haddonfield Public Library and to further an awareness and appreciation of the Haddonfield Public Library services by performing educational and cultural services for the community; developing, promoting and sustaining strong advocacy for the library; providing input to the library’s planning processes; conducting fundraising to complement the library’s mission and providing funding for special library projects.
