Holidays are Here!
We are in the holiday season and that means shopping!
There is a way to help the Friends just by doing your usual shopping.
If you have an Amazon account, Amazon Smile is a program that overlays your regular Amazon account.
Everything remains the same with the exception of entering through http://smile.amazon.com in which a portion of your purchase amount is sent directly to the Friends with no additional cost to you.
Just choose the Friends as your charity and you're ready to go.

Annual Volunteer Breakfast and Scholarship Awards
The Friends of the Cherry Hill Public Library held its Annual Volunteer Breakfast on May 22nd where Scholarships were awarded to four Cherry Hill High Schools students entering their freshman year of college.
$1,000 was awarded to Cherry Hill High School West graduate Eytan Gittler who will attend Georgetown University and major in Nursing; $500 was awarded to Cherry Hill High School West graduate Marissa Clemens who will attend the College of New Jersey and major in Elementary Education/English; $250 was awarded to Cherry Hill High School East graduate Amanda Friedman who will attend Haverford College and major in Sociology; and $250 was awarded to Cherry Hill High School East graduate Sean Dan who will attend the University of Texas at Austin and major in Mechanical Engineering.
The Library's Scholarship Program was established in 2011 by a former Volunteer Board Member who wanted to help the Cherry Hill community by advancing educational opportunities for its students. This year, there were 19 applicants (one-third more than last year) increasing the number of recipients from three to four. The quality and quantity of the students deemed it necessary to award more than three winners. The winners were chosen based on their academic records, their essays describing what makes the Library special to them and recommendations from their mentors.
Anyone is welcome to donate books to the Friends of the Library to be sold at upcoming Book Sales. Books donations are accepted at the library:
