Summer Reading 2017: Build a Better World
Children ages 6 months to 10 years will be “building a better world” this summer both literally and metaphorically! From storytimes about skyscrapers, ferris wheels, the Eiffel Tower, and construction vehicles, to learning about taking care of our planet, respecting the natural wonders of the Earth, and how we can learn about and respect different cultures, there’s something for everyone to learn about how to “build a better world”!
Teens can “Build a Better World” by playing Book Bingo to expand reading horizons or attending a library program. Teens can join the Teen Advisory Board to build a better teen experience at the library, too!
Visit our display and pick up an entry for our Adult Tic-Tac-Toe contest and a handout of volunteer opportunities in our community to help Build a Better World.
In Memory of T.R. Salvadori
It is with extreme sadness that we learned of the passing of T.R. Salvadori, a librarian for twenty-two years who retired in 2013. T.R. worked in the Cataloging and Processing Department. During his long library career, he also worked in the Waterford Library, McCowan Library, Glassboro Library, Rowan University Library, and the Monroe Twp. Library. T.R. earned his MS in Information Science from Drexel University in 1990. He was responsible for converting the card catalog to a computerized database.
Congratulations to Shirley Nolan, who was given the Caught in the Act Award for the time period spanning January through March 2017. Shirley was nominated by another library staff member for helping a patron look for a book on the shelf. Shirley maintained a calm demeanor and repeatedly explained how to locate the item. By the end of the interaction, the patron was thanking Shirley for her helpfulness.
Shirley has been employed at the library since January 10th 2007.
The Caught in the Act Award is financially sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
A Fond Farewell to Joanie Alexander
On October 22nd, 2001, it was fortunate for children and their caregivers in Washington Township that Joanie Alexander, known as Mrs. Alexander to many youngsters, was hired! She has decided to retire after many excellent years at the library. Her last day with us will be on February 28th 2017. Joanie has a new adventure planned for her future. She will be spending more time with her family, including her grandchildren.
Mrs. Sarah Kramer will be providing programs to children. We are so happy that we have an enthusiastic staff member who adores children available to serve the youngsters in our community! Mrs. Kramer is a familiar face to many young children and their caregivers. She is thrilled to be taking on this new role!
We will be hiring another librarian to focus on services to middle and high school students in the future, which is a goal listed in our recently released strategic plan.
We are sincerely going to miss Joanie and all that she contributed to children at the Heggan Library for many years. We wish her happiness in her retirement and we hope that she visits us often as a patron, attending our programs and borrowing materials from our vast collection!

In Memory of Micki Sullivan
February 22nd, 2016
We lament the loss of former employee, Micki Sullivan, who passed away on February 21st, 2016. Micki was always the life of the party and could always be counted on to make everyone, staff and patrons, laugh. She loved practical jokes and she was a shining light at the Heggan Library. For over twenty years, Micki worked at the library and she retired in April 2015.
