"Next is the Library, believe it or not, because just about every town has one.

The Library in Cherry Hill and in many cities is the center piece. In Cherry Hill it is large, architecturally interesting and welcoming.
People of all ages come for events, to take out one book or use the computers." – Carol Highsmith



See you at the library,
