WE NEED YOUR HELP IN THIS DEFINING MOMENT

The Camden Public Library is planning for its future. A community that creates young readers. Inspires lifelong learning. Is graced by a building and parks that have earned the distinction of being a national historic landmark. The Campaign for the Future will help us ensure that our library remains the vibrant center of our town’s public life, in times of need and times of abundance. 
 
The library is calling on the united effort and generosity of the community, as it did almost 100 years ago when the building was first constructed. This time, it’s not for bricks and mortar, but for the sustainability of our library’s vital services and programs into the future.
 
Learn why this is such a defining moment and how you can help.

BRICK BY BRICK, WE BUILD OUR FUTURE

Become a vital part of the library’s Campaign for the Future. Join in the library’s Brick Garden. With your investment of $250 per brick, you will have a visible legacy of your commitment to our town’s shining treasure. In the Brick Garden, located alongside the library’s Atlantic Avenue wall, your message will be nestled among the crocuses that bloom in spring.
 
What words would you like to share with future generations? Honor your loved ones (two- or four-legged). Share your favorite quote. It’s up to you! Find out how to reserve your brick.
