Beginning, April 12, the Camden County Library System will begin gradually reopening to the public, starting with limited services and hours at its larger branches. This marks the first time indoors, in-person services have been available to library patrons since facilities returned to primarily curbside operations amidst the fall and winter surge in COVID-19 activity. In addition to the gradual reopening of larger branches, all of the Camden County Library System’s branches are also continuing to offer contactless pickup options. The Merchantville branch has not yet resumed operations open to the public, however, it is continuing to provide no-contact pickup options. Pickup is available at the Merchantville branch Monday and Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and on Saturday, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Seven library branches will open to the public on Monday, April 12: Bellmawr, Camden Downtown, Ferry Ave., Gloucester Township, Haddon Township, South County, and Vogelson. Each branch will be open during the following hours: Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m and Wednesday and Thursday: 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. No-contact pickup will be available Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
