“Canceling and postponing our excellent programs and events for the month of March was a difficult decision for us at the Cherry Hill Public Library. Of course the health of our patrons, staff and community comes first. We followed the lead of both Cherry Hill Township and Camden County freeholders, who indefinitely postponed programs due to health department and CDC guidance, said Library Director Laverne Mann in a statement issued to the Sun.

“We provide online resources to patrons that are already heavily used: streaming ebooks, audiobooks, movies, and digital magazines. We also have research databases for students and people of all ages. The library is also open regular hours, or you can contact us by phone, email, or social media. The library is here for our community.”
