The Cyber Sunday Series is currently being held two Sundays a month. We’d love to present topics which are useful and interesting to the community. Please let us know what you’re interested in!
All classes are free, but some may have limited seating as they may be held in the History Center, so please call the library to sign up in advance at 236-3440. iPads and laptops are available to borrow through the Camden Public Library. Please inquire ahead of time if you’d like to check out an iPad for 2 weeks or borrow a laptop for use within the library for 2 hours.
