Academy of Natural SciencesStarting July 1, the Camden County Library System  will offer a new museum pass program free to library card holders, just in time for family summer vacations. The new service provides passes to 10 museums and other local attractions in the Delaware Valley and beyond.

Garden State Discovery MuseumPasses to the following museums are only available from the Vogelson Branch in Voorhees.  The Guggenheim, Penn Museum of Archaeology, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Roebling Museum .

“We’re very pleased and proud to offer our members the opportunity to visit some of the great local museums and other attractions that our area and region have to offer,” comments Linda Devlin, director of the Camden County Library System.Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Center “It’s a great partnership with local institutions that extends our mission to meet the educational and recreational needs of the residents we serve. It adds just one more value to owning a county library card.” She urges all those living in member communities to get a free library card and take advantage of its many benefits.

The pass program works similarly to borrowing books from the library. Grounds for Sculpture Members are welcome to go to a branch, check out a pass, use it for free admission to the specific museum and return it to the library branch for the next member to borrow. A museum pass must be returned to the same branch from which it was checked out.

Some of the passes may entitle the bearer to additional benefits like discounts at gift shops or on food sold at the museums.

Fall Preview

Is summer really coming to a close?  At least there's all kinds of fall fiction coming our way.  This list from the popular Bookpage magazine gives you a heads up on fall's most anticipated books.  

Here's a sampling; place your holds now.

Rooms by Lauren Oliver:

Wealthy Richard Walker has just died, leaving behind his country house full of rooms packed with the detritus of a lifetime. His estranged family -- bitter ex-wife Caroline, troubled teenage son Trenton, and unforgiving daughter Minna -- have arrived for their inheritance. But the Walkers are not alone.

The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters:

It is 1922, and London is tense. Ex-servicemen are disillusioned, the out-of-work and the hungry are demanding change. And in South London, in a genteel Camberwell villa, a large silent house now bereft of brothers, husband and even servants, life is about to be transformed, as impoverished widow Mrs Wray and her spinster daughter, Frances, are obliged to take in lodgers.

 

Plus new books from Anne Rice, Jan Karon, David Mitchell, Ian McEwan....
