We LOVE our library!

February, sure it’s cold, sometimes dreary but the perfect time to get cozy with a great book!

If you’re looking to get out with the little ones, Miss Kim will be starting up story hour on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Be sure to let her know you’re interested.

Don’t forget Valentine’s Day is Monday. Stop by the Children’s Library to make a Valentine card and craft.

Masks please for library gatherings!

Saturday snowstorm?

Due to predicted weather conditions the library will be CLOSED tomorrow, Saturday, January 29, 2022.

It should be a perfect day to cozy up with a good book. Or, if we get 6-12 inches of snow, maybe save the book and hot chocolate for after sledding.

Have fun but stay safe!

Looking ahead 2022

We hope the pandemic will slow, and are making plans to resume our Wednesday morning story hour.  Details soon.

The Adult library is open regular hours, Monday through Thursday, 10 am to 6 pm and the Children’s Library is open Monday through Thursday, 12 pm to 5 pm.

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!

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Observed the third Monday in January, celebrating the life and achievements of the Civil Rights leader, as well as a commitment to service

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.

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.
