Cinnaminson Library

Awhile back I was contacted by the Cinnaminson Branch Library.    They wanted a display with a local flair and asked if  Jersey Made would be interested.   So it is very exciting for me to announce that today I set up an exhibit of handmade art by New Jersey artists in the display case near the entrance.

Please look for it in the month of November!!

You can find their hours and location on their website – just click here:

 Cinnaminson Library

 1619 Riverton Road
Cinnaminson, NJ 08077
Phone: 856-829-9340

Cinnaminson Library is a branch of the Burlington County Library System.    There is so much that our libraries offer to us in addition to the loaning of books.   You can follow information on all the branches in the BCLS on Facebook as well!    Check it out (the books and everything else)!

This part of the display was kind of special for me.    Mary was helping to clean out some books from her old high school friend’s collection and I was able to go through them before the yard sale.    Tom had quite an elaborate collection and seemed to have many books on New Jersey.   These books were part of his collection.

Love that owl and he fits perfect into the “A”
