Camden Library chosen to receive ‘Hannaford Helps’ Reusable Bag donations this March

The Camden Public Library is honored to be the beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program this March, 2023!

This reusable bag program makes it easy to make a difference for the library, right here in our own community. Starting on March 1 and throughout the month, the library will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at the Hannaford store located at 145 Elm Street in Camden. Reusable Community Bags are also available for purchase online via Hannaford To Go.

Join us to help the library reach its goal to sell at least 100 bags in March! The library extends heartfelt thanks to the entire staff of the Camden Hannaford for making this program possible and for all of their hard work. For more information on the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program, visit
