Curbside Pick-Up, Safe and Successful!

It’s hard watching the COVID-19 numbers climbing so dramatically in recent weeks. We always want you to feel safe checking out books from our library. Many of you have embraced our contactless curbside pick-up option. In fact, we’ve bagged around 8,000 orders since we began offering this service during the pandemic . . . and we know demand for this option will continue for many months ahead.

We’re very happy to do it, but we could use some help with the expenses for the required supplies. You can show your love for this service and help to keep it going strong by giving at librarycamden.org/donate. Thanks!
