Gala Celebration Set for Oct. 23, Public Invited

The Maple Shade Library is poised to celebrate its brand new, spruced-up appearance with a gala event on Friday, Oct. 23, and the public is invited to join in the festivities.

Located within the Maple Shade Municipal Complex on Stiles Avenue, the library recently underwent a much-anticipated makeover thanks to a joint effort by the Burlington County Library System and the township. The renovations include the addition of bright new paint on the walls, comfortable modern seating, and friendly, welcoming signage that give the facility a fresh look.

Visitors are invited to check out the updated library on Friday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. when staff celebrates the renovated space with the public. The festivities will include light refreshments and live acoustic music by Joe Vadala.

In addition, visitors will be invited to go on a “visual scavenger hunt” in the library, and there will be a make-n-take craft for the kids. There also will be a display by the Maple Shade Historical Society, as well as a display of vintage library and Maple Shade memorabilia.

Registration is not required.
