Borrowing Information

Returning Materials

All library materials can be returned to the Main Library, the South Side Branch, or the Bookmobile, any time they are open. With the exception of HTCC EZ-Lend, materials do not have to be returned to the same location where you checked them out. You may also return items to Allentown Public Library or Easton Area Public Library.

Materials may be placed in the two book drops on Church Street in front of the Main Library 24 hours a day. The only exceptions are that the book drops are locked at 5 pm on New Year’s Eve and on July 4th. They are re-opened at 8 am the following morning. Materials returned to the book drops before the library opens at 9 am are checked in as if they had been returned the previous business day.

The book drop in the door of the South Side Branch is open only when the Branch is closed.

You may return our books to other public libraries in Pennsylvania, but please be sure that the library is a participant in the Access Pennsylvania program and will return the books to us. PLEASE DO NOT RETURN DVDS, GAMES OR PLAYAWAY VIEWS TO LIBRARIES OTHER THAN BETHLEHEM, ALLENTOWN OR EASTON.
