VOORHEES, NJ –May 7, 2015 –The Camden County Library System has been providing free, temporary library cards to Haddonfield residents as a courtesy while the borough’s library is closed for renovations.

With the card residents have access not only to the collections of books, DVDs, CDs and audiobooks available at the library system’s eight branches but to numerous electronic, online and downloadable resources as well.

Among the resources are digital magazines that don’t have to be returned; downloadable e-books from two online services, OverDrive and Freading; downloadable music; digital audiobooks and streaming movies from renown film festivals through IndieFlix – all accessible with a valid CCLS Library card on the system’s website at www.camdencountylibrary.org .

The temporary cards can be obtained through a simple application to CCLS either online or in paper form, and once issued the cards will be valid to the end of 2015.

Haddonfield residents may apply in person at their nearest CCLS branch or online at http://www.camdencountylibrary.org/haddonfield . Two forms of identification showing a current street address or one form of photo identification that includes a resident’s address is required to make a proper application. When applying, children 14 and under need to be accompanied by an adult.

“We are only too glad to help Haddonfield residents while their library is closed for renovations,” says Linda Devlin as CCLS director. “We welcome you to explore our services and visit any of our eight branches to take full advantage of card membership.”
