The character of a historic residential neighborhood can be identified by the scale, materials and detail of the existing buildings as they have changed over time.  However, modern requirements can necessitate substantial changes or additions to those buildings.  With care, modern additions and alterations can be designed to respect the existing historic character, while accommodating modern requirements.

The Secretary of the Interior’s “Standards for Rehabilitation”, administered by the National Park Service, establish guidelines for architectural changes to historic buildings.

This program will look at historic patterns of residential additions, and will include images of additions which meet the Standards, as well as some that do not.

Eric Holtermann is an architect working in West Windsor. 

Saturday, Apr. 29, 10:30
Have an old stamp collection gathering dust and want to learn if it's worth anything? Members of the Hamilton Township Philatelic Society will be at the library to evaluate if your collection has any value. They will advise the entire collection or a single stamp. If you want to sell the stamps, they will provide a list of local dealers, auction houses, and charities that accept stamps. 

Attention scouts: we can help you achieve a Stamp Collecting Merit Badge!

Stone Soup is the story of three soldiers who wander into town looking for food. All the townspeople hid their food not wanting to give any away. The soldiers come up with an idea to make a stone soup. We don’t want to spoil the story, but let’s just say the clever soldiers don't go to bed hungry!
Come to the library to make and enjoy our very own version of Stone Soup with Library Board member, Robin Black. What a great way to celebrate Children's Book Week! Limit 15, grades K-3.
