About the Nilsa I. Cruz-Perez Downtown Branch at Rutgers

2013 Library Design ShowcaseIn an innovative move that could serve as a model for urban areas nationwide, Camden County Library Commission and Rutgers Camden came together to create an outpost branch of the County System that is located inside the Robeson Library on the Rutgers University campus. The branch was featured in the 2013 Library Design Showcase issue of American Libraries, a national library publication.
