Camden Library welcomes all new staff members to the Madison County Library System. “May we greet each other with a smile, hug and speak kind words”. - Laliah Gifty Akita.
Summer Reading was offered during the months of June and July. Our theme for the summer was On Your Mark, Get Set… READ! Prizes were given to students who read the most books. Programs included magicians, animal tales, superhero videos and crazy science experiments. Programs ended with an end-of-summer dance off.
Staff Development was held at the Madison branch in May where a CPR certification class was given to all employees in the system. We are all now CPR certified!
Inventory was done at all of the branches during the month of August so all library materials were inventoried and accounted for. We were treated to a delicious lunch afterwards, thanks to the administration!
We are in the early stages of planning for our annual Halloween program and with help from Youth Services and our Friends, I am sure that the program will be great.
New books and other library materials will be coming soon. Make plans to stop by your favorite branch and check them out. You are always welcome and we do appreciate your patronage.
