Library System Closed Due to Inclement Weather - Thursday, 3/5

The Camden County Library System is closed on Thursday, March 5th due to anticipated inclement weather conditions.

Free Museum Passes Prove Popular

The Camden County Library System continues to offer free passes to 11 museums and other attractions in the area. Winter is a great time to take the family and visit some of the indoor venues available through the program.

Garden State Discovery MuseumPasses to the Academy of Natural Sciences, Camden Children’s Garden, Garden State Discovery Museum, Grounds for Sculpture, Morris Arboretum, Wheaton Arts and Woodford Wildlife Refuge  are available from any of the library system’s eight branches. 

Passes to the The Guggenheim, Penn Museum of Archaeology, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Roebling Museum are only available from the M. Allan Vogelson Regional Branch Library in Voorhees.

The program has proven popular with the library’s patrons throughout the county. Over eleven hundred passes have been borrowed since the program launched in July 2014.

The pass program works similarly to borrowing books from the library.  Adult cardholders may check out one museum pass at a time per  family and use it for free admission to the selected museum or attraction for up to four days. Passes must be returned to the same branch from which it was borrowed.

The number of individuals admitted with each pass differs with the museum. Some passes entitle the bearer to additional benefits like discounts at gift shops or on food sold at the museums. Go to http://www.camdencountylibrary.org/pass or visit your local branch to learn more about the pass program and participating attractions.
