The Riletta L. Cream Ferry Avenue Branch Library will be getting a lot of new books thanks to the Penguin Random House grant for innovation.

The grant awards $1,000 in free books to be selected by the library from the Penguin Random House catalog. It is awarded to the library’s “Tutor Time,” a tutoring program led by medical student volunteers from the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University.

During the school year, a pool of about 51 medical students tutor Camden youth three times a week. Attracting about 16 children each session, each meeting ends with snacks, games or crafts to keep the children engaged after the tutoring session.
