Voorhees Library to Stage Big Play Date for 1 – 3 Year-olds and Parents

Unpublished

VOORHEES, NJ – March 12, 2014 – Ever watch a kid spend more time playing with the BOX than the toy that came in it? Most of us have probably watched a similar scene or done it ourselves for those of us who can reach that far back into our memories.

Did you know that one and two-year-olds who play blocks with their parents for just 20 minutes a day score 15 percent higher on language development tests? It’s when a child’s imagination can make the most of the simplest things, and it’s a prime learning time.

With this in mind, the Camden County Library is staging its biggest play date ever on Saturday, March 29, 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Voorhees branch library.

Camden County Library Celebrates African American History

Unpublished

Four programs at three branches include Underground Railroad quilt, films and more

VOORHEES, NJ – Jan. 8, 2014 – The Camden County Library System is observing African American History Month this February with four programs that include film festivals and a focus on the Underground Railroad as a key part of American history.

The Gloucester Twp.-Blackwood Rotary Public Library will give children in grades K to five the chance to learn about how the Underground Railroad helped slaves escape to freedom on Thursday, February 13, 6:30 p.m. One of the ingenious means of communication “conductors” on the Underground Railroad used as they led their “passengers” to freedom was the creation of quilts. These innocent-looking quilts secretly conveyed information in their designs and in the way they were constructed, which guided the “conductors and passengers” to the next “station” on Underground Railroad to freedom.

Unpublished

Customers of the Camden County Library System donated 1,926 books to the library’s Book for Kids Holiday Campaign in 2013. The new and gently-used books were distributed by Camden County Children’s Services Department to children across the county in time for the holidays.

Some of the books were distributed at a Head Start in Camden, NJ.  (Click in the center of the picture to see the photos full size.)

“We know the communities of Camden County support reading for children based on the consistent attendance at our story times, book clubs and other reading activities that we offer regularly at all eight of our branches. So the generosity of our customers is not a surprise,” says Camden County Library System Director Linda Devlin.

“Books open a world of opportunities for children by expanding their education and imagination,” says Freeholder Ian Leonard, liaison to the Camden County Library System.  He notes the impact of the successful book drive, “By providing free books, the Camden County Library System and its generous supporters are giving children the gift of knowledge while exposing them to the enjoyment of reading.”

Devlin points out the library supports reading for children of all ages throughout the year with its broad collection of materials for younger customers. She adds the library system offers scores of programs each month designed for children, tweens and teens. The library’s Book Buddies programs are popular and offered at most branches. Each Book Buddies program pairs teen and tween volunteers with eager, younger readers.
