Check out our new 'zine! (...literally)

It's here!

It's here!

We are SO excited and proud to announce that the first issue of Bridges, our teen art and literary 'zine is finally here! And just as we promised, it's full of fantastic poetry, artwork, photography, and short stories by Cherry Hill teens like you.

But wait, you are thinking, How shall I access this great resource of local teen art and writing? Not to worry, dear reader. All you have to do is come to the Children's Desk at the library, we have copies just waiting for you to check them out! Stop by anytime!

P.S. Also keep your eyes peeled for an online version of this issue to be posted on our website and blog in March!


Say what you really mean this Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, NOISE readers!

We here at CHPL recognize that many Valentine's Day cards you find in the store can be overly sentimental or awkwardly suggestive in nature. It can be hard to find something that truly expresses your feelings for that special someone. Never fear -- we've found a few cards that get straight to the point (and let you keep your street cred -- bonus!)

For those who take a literal approach to things. From some ecards.

Any vampire lover (or Joss Whedon fan) would be smitten after receiving this one. From etsy seller FaithHopeTrick.

Lame puns AND Harry Potter? Be still, my heart! From Yenniper.

 For that special someone who you'd travel across time and space for. This is my personal favorite. From this tumblr.
