News From BCLS!

The Director of the Burlington County Library System, Rajna Das, posted that after careful planning, the library system, which includes our beloved Riverton Free Library, will be opening in stages.  Excerpted from her email:

  • Returns: We will open book drops at select BCLS locations. All materials returned will be checked-in and quarantined for 72 hours after which they will be added back to our collection.
  • Pick-up of Materials: Many of you have had items on hold since March, so we want to offer an opportunity to pick up those items. Then, we’ll also launch a curbside service so you can begin to check out physical items again, initiate our Library by Mail service and make enhanced reference and customer service available.
  • Access to Computers: At this point we will provide access to public PCs by appointment at select BCLS locations.

Coordinating with Governor Murphy’s plan for the State of New Jersey, the libraries will be opening in stages.  Our own library Director Christian Pulverenti, Mr. Christian, is taking up the challenge of opening our small library, safely.  Details to follow!
