Campbell Employees Rehab Camden Free Library; Donated Computers, Books and Circulation Desk Provide Community With Access To New Technology

CAMDEN, N.J. January 28, 2009 – Campbell Soup Company employees are taking on a new project to rehabilitate the Camden Free Public Library. Beginning Thursday, January 29, 2009 through Saturday, January 31, 2009, approximately 40 Campbell volunteers will be moving and assembling book shelves, building a new circulation desk and creating an online catalogue of the library’s 115,000 books.


As part of the project, more than 30 computers are being donated and installed, tripling the size of the current computer center. This center serves 3,200 people monthly and is in desperate need of more computers. Campbell employees will eventually set up and network all of the computers over the course of the next month.


The idea for this library project came from Campbell employee Rafael Bravo who is a frequent patron of the Camden library and recognized there weren’t enough computers to meet the demands of the community.
