The Camden County Library System is gradually reopening to the public, starting with limited services and hours at our larger locations the week of September 14th. We will continue to offer no-contact pickup at all branches, several times a week, for those who would prefer to get their materials that way. Hours and services may change. Please check our website or call your branch before your visit. We will offer morning hours on some days, and evening hours on other days, so that everyone can find a time to visit. Merchantville will continue to offer No-Contact Pickup Only: Monday and Wednesday, 5:00-8:00 p.m. and Saturday, 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Camden County Library has virtual events every week for kids. Here are some events for the week of May 11-15. Monday morning kids can "Make Your Own Journal" with simple home supplies or join in some evening fun with "Tween Dungeons & Dragons". On Tuesday get ready for some zany lip-syncing Zoom fun with Miss Tina and Miss Paige. Wednesday they are bringing their "Read to a Therapy Dog" program to your home via Zoom. And, every Monday-Friday at 10:30 a.m. librarians host "Little Readers Theatre" on Facebook Live. Please use their website calendar to register for theses events.
The Camden County Library System invites adults and teens ages 12 and up in our community to contribute to our online Quaranzine, a special publication documenting this monumental and unique moment in time we now find ourselves in. Share your experience with COVID-19 and social distancing using the art medium of your choice. Each issue of the CCLS Quaranzine will be featured on the library’s website. Submissions must be original art. Use the form below to submit your artwork, but be sure to read through the guidelines first.
Moms and dads who re looking for educational entertainment while schools and daycares are closed can join Miss Paige for "Little Readers Theatre" at a storytime right on Facebook LIVE! On Monday, March 16th at 10:30 a.m. Login to Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/camdencountylibrary and your kiddies can enjoy 45 minutes of silly stories, songs, felt board stories, and finger plays. While the Camden County Library System - and Merchantville Branch - has decided to cancel all on-site Library-sponsored programming until April 1st, they will be offering some virtual events and programs for the entire family.
