The Cherry Hill Public Library joins libraries and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week from April 12 to April 18. In Cherry Hill, April 2015 marks the 10-year anniversary of its building and will host a special day of programs and celebration on Tuesday, April 14.
April 14 will kick-off with a Birthday Bash at 10 a.m. All ages are welcome to join us for birthday themed stories, crafts, games and cake. Our friends from Honeygrow will also be on hand with tasty samples from their new restaurant at Ellisburg Circle.
At 11 a.m., residents can take a guided behind the scenes tour of the library. See where books are processed, take a peek at the archives and other locations rarely seen by the public.
Teens are invited to a Galley Party at 6 p.m. and everyone will leave with a new book.
Wrap up the day with a special program, Top 10 New Jersey Day Trips, presented by representatives from the State Travel and Tourism Division and Visit South Jersey.
Throughout the day, be sure to stop by the lobby table and pick up a giveaway and take a photo at the library’s selfie station.
All week long, the library is hosting a Food for Fines event. Patrons with overdue fines can have them erased by donating non-perishable food items to benefit the Food Bank of South Jersey. For each food item donated, the library will forgive fines for one overdue library material. Food donations are welcome from patrons who do not need to clear fines.
