Welcome to Your Pennsauken Public Library

The Cornerstone of Our Community

UPDATE ON LIBRARY RE-OPENING FOR LIMITED SERVICES ONLY

We are now providing contactless pickup of materials holds at the Library’s main entrance. The contactless holds service is a new one, and once your reserved items have been pulled, staff will contact you to schedule a date to pick up your items. Patrons may place holds on items that are both checked out and available on the shelf. Holds may be placed over the phone at 856.665.5959 ext. 3, or through the online catalog here. We are happy to receive returned library materials at the Community Room door (the door closest to Route 130 and the Library flagpole). We are disinfecting and sequestering all items for seven days before reshelving or checking them out to another patron.

Both services are available during the following open hours:
Monday-Friday 11AM-4PM
Saturday 11AM-1PM
Sunday Closed

 Please note, in order to drop off or pick up items, you must be wearing a mask. Pennsauken Free Public Library reserves the right to refuse service to those patrons who are not wearing a mask.  

The library building, including public computer access, will continue to be closed to the public until further notice. No printing or notary services are available at this time.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Library staff will be available via phone and email to assist you with reference questions, hold requests, and summer reading event registration. You can reach us at 856.665.5959 ext. 3 and askalibrarian@pennsaukenlibrary.org.

SAVE THE DATE! Thursday, August 6 at 7:30pm

Please join the Pennsauken Library for the following Community Conversations event

On TV, Cops Are Always the Main Characters
Presenter: Kathryn VanArendonk, staff writer at Vulture and New York Magazine covering TV, stand-up comedy, and culture

This talk will cover a short history and critical look into the role of police on television, and the changing way TV has depicted policing and crime over its nearly 100 years. We'll talk about the role of police in writing and developing stories for TV, and the way Hollywood has relied on police departments as primary sources since TV's inception. But we'll also try to think about how police stories work, and what happens when culture is inundated with stories that prioritize police protagonists.

This event is open to all community members and will be presented via Zoom. The registration information will be posted closer to the event date.

Ask a Librarian Online-Live

If you would like to speak to a librarian directly with any questions you have, or information you need, we now are offering the opportunity to register for a live meeting with one of our librarians.

There are three sessions a week, Tuesdays @ 7PM, Thursdays @ 10AM, and Saturdays at 11AM.

Click here to register for a meeting, and we'll speak to you soon!

Thank you for bearing with what we hope will be small inconveniences in the service of public health.
