In honor of National Library Week and National Library Workers Day, Freeholder Riletta Cream recognized two library employees with proclamations. The Library management team selected Peg Feld and Chris Entwisle to receive these awards in recognition of their exemplary service and dedication to the Library.

Freeholder Cream presented the proclamations at the Pastoral Winds performance at the Voorhees branch on April 4. The following are nominations from their supervisors that outline their achievements:

Peg Feld began her career with the Camden County Library System in 1981 as a part-time librarian at the Gloucester Township Branch. When the Bellmawr Branch opened in 1997, Peg joined the staff as the full-time Children’s Services librarian.  Over the years Peg has developed children’s and family programming at Bellmawr, including a weekly preschool story time, toddler tales, afternoon crafts for elementary school kids and special events throughout the year.

Her summer reading program has something happening almost every day from late June through mid-August. Peg also has done story times and crafts at two member libraries – Mt. Ephraim and Woodlynne – and visits the Warwick Nursery School once a month. Peg visits the Bellmawr schools each spring to talk about the summer reading program.

Chris Entwisle has been an invaluable, stable and motivating force in the Circulation Department at the M. Allan Vogelson Regional Branch Library for more than 30 years.  Chris handles all tasks and situations well, be it a patron issue, a staff issue or a technical situation. He is a well respected leader and understands why we are here doing the jobs we do. He has a demonstrated understanding of the Library’s mission, vision and goals that is not only apparent from his actions, but has also had a noticeable effect on many of those who work around him.




Students in grades 5-8 at Woodglen School in Hunterdon County collected books to donate to the Books For Kids Campaign. They wanted to make a difference in the life of a child. The student council searched online for New Jersey volunteer opportunities and came across the Camden County Library System's Books For Kids site. They then saw a struggling family in Camden on the television show Home Makeover and couldn't believe the hard times some people face. They also had a hard time believing that people were living such a hard life nearby in the state they live in. Next, they advertised the collection, went through the books, and boxed them up to deliver. They were very excited about the success of the drive and they ended up delivering 15 boxes of books to benefit the Camden County Division of Children's Services who distributed them to needy children in the county over the holidays.

The kids hoped that like the site said, "The number of books we collect is always matched by a greater number of smiles from book recipients."

Thanks to teacher Suzette Dilzer, who personally delivered the books to the library, and her kids, and many other generous donors, this year we collected over 1,500 books for children in Camden County. 


Constance JohnsonConstance Johnson shows off her achievement award during the annual recognition tea for volunteers at the Camden County Library. Volunteers play an important part in the Library system, performing a variety of jobs ranging from shelving books, repairing books, assisting in library programs, running book sales and directing visitors.  The tea is one way of saying thank you to all of our volunteers!
