We continue to offer curbside service, 11 am to 4 pm.

Be sure to stop by the Children’s Library to meet Mrs. Pew.   Mrs. Pew (or Ms Kim) is looking forward to meeting everyone.and sharing a special story tour of Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame.  

The exhibit was created by the Vincentown Garden Club for the annual Christmas tour at the Smithville Mansion – the kids are sure to love it!

Burlington County residents are encouraged to join thousands of Americans across the country honoring Dr. King’s memory by participating in service projects in their communities. Together, we will remember his legacy of tolerance, peace and equality by making the holiday “a day on, not a day off.”

The Burlington County Library System invites you to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The library, in partnership with the Volunteer Center of Burlington County, will host the 16th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Challenge on Monday, Jan. 17 from 10 am to 3 pm, at the headquarters location of the Burlington County Library in Westampton.

Will we have snow Thursday night? Guess we’ll have to wait and see. Be prepared! Stop by the library to pick up a few books for the weekend.

The library will be open Thursday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-2pm.

See you then!

Wishing you all…

A very Happy Holiday!

Story hour is cancelled but will resume in 2022.

Our Thursday 4&5 year old artists will meet December 23rd. at 1:30.

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

Happy Holidays!

A tree is standing in the center of town, waiting. Wreaths have been hung on all the lampposts. Garlands have arrived and ready to adorn the doorways. It looks to me like we “might” be getting ready for Christmas!

This Friday evening Vincentown Village will celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with the Annual Tree lighting. Festivities, including music and a “special” guest, will begin at 6:30 pm.

Our library is getting ready for the holidays and planning programs for the little ones.

We’ll begin to celebrate at Story hour, Wednesday morning at 10:30 am, reading stories and making a simple Christmas tree craft.

Thursday’s group of 4 and 5 year old children will be making a Santa calendar to begin their countdown to Christmas.

As always, masks are required. And, please let us know if you plan to attend! (609-859-3598 or 609-859-9002)

Happy Thanksgiving!

There’s a flurry of activity! Since everyone’s getting ready for Thanksgiving we will not be having story hour tomorrow.

Next week we can begin preparing for our next big holiday. Stop by the library and pick up a few cookbooks to find a few new cookie recipes.

Story hour will resume next week on Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m. AND our Thursday afternoon story/craft for 4 and 5 year old kids will resume at 1:30 p.m. on December 2nd.

Registration is necessary for all programs and masks are mandatory. Call 609-859-9002 or 609-859-3598.

November

We welcome November, the crisp mornings, the falling leaves and holidays (can you believe the Christmas music has already begun?).

Sadly we bid adieu to our good friend, Library Director, Marsha Jones, as she heads off into the world of retirement. We’ll miss her and the enthusiasm she displayed for EVERYTHING! Hopefully, our Miss Marsha will stop by to visit often.

We welcome our new Library Director, Maile Irion. Maile is not a stranger to most of the children in the area, for her many years of service to the Southampton school system. As Director she looks forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. Stop by to meet Maile and welcome her to our library community.

Family story hour begins next week, November 10, 2021, at 10:30 a.m. Children accompanied by a parent or guardian are invited to join us for stories and a craft. Masks are required for the protection of the children.

Please let us know if you plan to attend! 609-859-3598 or 609-859-9002.

Halloween is just around the corner…

What are you planning to be this Halloween? It is on a Sunday, so the library will be closed. But we do plan to be there for the annual parade on Friday. Stop by to say hello (and Trick or Treat)!

Our Family story hour will resume on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, at 10:30 a.m. Children, accompanied by a parent or guardian, are invited to listen to stories and create a simple craft. Please let us know if you plan to attend.

Our Fall Fun, for kids ages 4 and 5 years, continues with a Halloween theme. This week our artists will again be painting with watercolors. This week, pumpkins – next week monsters!

Thank you

Thanks to everyone for coming out to our Annual Art Exhibit & Sale. It was a lovely evening – the library simply glows with pride when used as a backdrop for such beautiful art. Thanks to all the artists for their support of our local library.

Children’s Library

The kids in our Thursday afternoon program, Fun for 4’s & 5’s, completed their first project: crayon resist fall leaves.

This week a Monarch Butterfly scene of cut paper and paint. It should be fun!
