The Camden County Library District provides many learning and enriching events and library services for adult patrons and guests. Are you looking to further your career, changing your job, or looking to head back to school? Be sure to look at the education opportunities that we have to offer; all you need is a library card and computer access. Need help learning how to use these resources? Any of our friendly staff are ready to assist you today.
Or maybe you are looking for something to do during the day or want to make new friends. Why not drop in on any one of our weekly events that include book clubs, genealogy workshops, movie showings, and more. And remember, all of these events and library services for adults are either at no charge or are for a minimal fee.
Do you need space to work? We have a somewhat private computer lab, allowing you to work in a quiet area with access to printers, email, and Microsoft Word and Excel. Or it may be that you need banners or large format posters printed. If you are a guest to the Lake area and need to use our computers for work, we have guest passes available, for which there is a small fee of $1.00 for 60 minutes. If you bring your device, you can use our Wi-Fi connection free of charge.
