We’re having our fourth adult dance party at the Collingswood Community Center on Friday, May 8, 2015 from 8:00 p.m.–Midnight. Tickets and more information are available online. Please join us.
And thank you to everyone who has attended the first three dances, which were instrumental in raising funds to add new books to your free ebook collection. Another dance means even more great ebooks in the next few months!
Your Collingswood Public Library card now offers experiences for you and your family outside of the library—and even outside of Collingswood itself. Your library now offers at least one family pass for each of the following:
- Academy of Natural Sciences
- Garden State Discovery Museum
- Grounds for Sculpture
- Morris Arboretum
- Penn Museum
- Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts
Adult cardholders in good standing may check out one pass at a time, and each pass may be checked out for up to four days. For more information, or to find out which passes are available today, call the Library at (856) 858-0649.
