Art Gallery

The Library’s art collection, permanent and rotating, has become a popular feature and sets the Cherry Hill Public Library apart from other public buildings. The CHPL Art Gallery (located on the lower level) showcases artists from the amateur to those whose work is known worldwide. The gallery exhibit rotates monthly. In addition to the gallery, other art is displayed throughout the building, many pieces on long-term or permanent loan. If you are interested in featuring your art in the Library, please contact Katie Hardesty at 856-903-1207 or

Express PC

Even with more than 90 computers in the library, there are still times when patrons were waiting to get online! To best serve the public, we created two "Express PC" stations in the Main Reading Room of the Library. These computers are designated for visitors on the go who literally need to "hop online and hop off.” They are programmed to allow only 15 minutes of computer usage at a time.
