Dear members and extended community,

Following the announcement of school closings by the Philadelphia School District and in an effort to limit the pathways for disease transmission in our community, we have made the decision to close our community media center starting on Monday, March 16 through Sunday, March 29.
We are closed per the Pennsylvania's Stay At Home order.

The staff will be working remotely. We will be available by email and will be responding to voicemails. For info not available on our website, email info@phillycam.org. Responses may be delayed. We'll reply as soon as we are able.
