The Library is Temporarily Closed

March, 2020
The library will continue to remain closed, indefinitely, per NJ Executive Order 107 and Order No. 2020-3 which were both recently issued by Governor Murphy. At this time, we cannot anticipate when the library will be open to the public or to the staff again.

We are in the process of determining types of additional virtual services that we may be able to provide to our patrons beyond our digital resources via our website. We appreciate both your understanding and patience at this time as we continue to handle a difficult and unprecedented situation.

We have extended all of our due dates on all materials until April 30th, 2020. We will waive all late fees that may accumulate during the time we are closed.

We encourage everyone to stay home. However, our library book drop is still available, and you may return your borrowed materials. You are welcome to keep any materials that you have checked out until the due date at the end of April.

If you have returned your library materials via our book drop, you may notice that the items still appear on your library account. We are not physically checking in any library materials until further notice. Please be assured that the materials will be checked in and they will no longer appear on your account as soon as we are physically able to safely handle all of the returned materials.

Until further notice, holds cannot be placed on physical library materials. We will automatically extend any holds that are already waiting for you on our holds shelf at the library so that they do not expire. Once the library opens again, you will be able to check out those materials.

The Margaret E. Heggan Free Public Library is committed to the well-being and safety of our guests, staff, and community. We continue to closely follow the directives issued by public authorities and health officials as we strive to develop our plans to respond to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak.

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month!

September, 2018
As students head back to school, there is one essential school supply that requires no shopping and doesn’t cost a penny—a library card. Since 1987, Library Card Sign-Up Month has been held each September. During the month, libraries unite in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card. This year, Disney Pixar’s the
Incredibles are Library Card Sign-Up Month honorary chairs, helping to promote the value of a library card and bring attention to the many ways libraries and librarians transform lives and communities through education.

Children ages 6 months to 10 years will be “building a better  world” this summer both literally and metaphorically!

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!

A Fond Farewell to Joanie Alexander

February 2017
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!

The Library Receives Two New Early Literacy Stations

The library is pleased to announce that it now has two new AWE Digital Learning Solutions Early Literacy Stations in the Children’s Library.

Designed for children ages 2-8, these computers will prepare young learners for the educational world ahead of them. Children will encounter familiar faces including Diego, Dora the Explorer, Reader Rabbit, Sponge Bob, Sesame Street characters and more on these easy to use computer stations. Best of all it makes learning fun.

These stations are possible thanks to a generous donation from the Friends of the Library. The Friends of the Library support the library through fundraising and advocacy.

“On Your Mark, Get Set…READ!”

June, 2016

Healthy eating and fitness will be featured at a wide range of programs and events held throughout the summer including stories, crafts, music, food, fitness, and dance.

Online registration is required for each event and is limited to Heggan Library cardholders. Registration for each event begins on Monday of the preceding week at 10:00 a.m.

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.
