The Bethlehem Room
An invaluable resource for those interested in the rich history of our city, region and people, the Bethlehem Room at the central branch of Bethlehem Area Public Library offers visitors onsite access to non-circulating books, journals, pamphlets, directories, clippings, photographs, maps and other research materials housed in our local history collections. For more complete information on Collection holdings, search our on-line catalog.
NEW Featured Collections:
Records of the Greater Bethlehem Area Council of Churches, 1956-2005
Papers and Artwork of Christian Friedrich Hellener include materials relating to the history of the Hellener and Morey families, but perhaps more significantly include a fascinating collection of watercolors done by Mr. Hellener throughout the 19th century.
Refer to our finding aids for detailed information regarding these and other collections housed in the Bethlehem Room.
