Media Coverage Invited

When: Thursday June 10, 4pm

Where: Collingswood Public Library, 771 Haddon Avenue

Contact: Brett Bonfield, Library Director; 856-858-0649; bonfield@collingswoodlib.org

There’s an exciting new chapter at the Collingswood Public Library and it’s just in time for summer.  Join us Thursday June 10th, as we cut the ribbon to open the brand new Teen Area on the second floor of the Library.  The Teen Area features a big flat screen TV, Wii and video games, comfortable furniture and books, lots of books-- all combining to create a safe and friendly place to “hang out.”

A host of ingenious fundraisers has made The Teen Area possible.  One was the first Collingswood Book Festival 5k Run.  Also known as “Beat the Director,” runners were challenged to race against Library Director Brett Bonfield.  A video spoof promoting that race was made by Emerald Productions last year.  It had over 8,000 hits on YouTube and was also featured on Philadelphia’s NBC10. A new Emerald Productions video for this year’s run, called “Eat the Director’s Brain,” will make its debut at the Opening.

Also contributing towards the Teen area are the Collingwood Friends of the Library and the Library Board of Trustees.  A number of special donations have been in made in memory of Becky Childs, the daughter of the late Library Director Peter Childs.  Becky’s mother, Carol Childs will be on hand for the ceremony to dedicate the Teen Area in memory of the young lady who loved to read and loved spending time at our Library.

Collingswood Mayor Jim Maley and Commissioners Joan Leonard and Mike Hall will cut the ribbon to open the Teen Area at 4pm on June 10th.
Refreshments will be served, compliments of the Collingswood Friends of the Library.

Forwarded on behalf of Emily Sheketoff, ALA-Washington Office:

The Department of Education has $10 million for planning grants for the Promise Neighborhoods program as part of the Fund for the Improvement of Education. These planning grants for $400,000 to $500,000 each are for the planning purpose of what will be a program to improve significantly the education and development outcomes of children in distressed communities.

This is a heads up for school, community college and public librarians to REACH OUT NOW to eligible entities which could be non-profit organizations or institutions of higher learning who might be applying because they operate a school; partner with a school or Local Education Agency; currently provide a solution to cradle-through-college-to-career in a distressed neighborhood or represent a neighborhood being proposed for service.

Best is being part of a group's application from the planning stage, but GET INTO THE GROUP AND PARTICIPATE IN THEIR PLANNING.
