Musikfest Hours Are In Effect!

BAPL News No Comments »

bandsbattleFor the next 10 days, starting today Friday August 1st, Bethlehem ROCKS ON with Musikfest – the mega music festival that takes over the City every year. The Library’s Bookmobile is off the road for the entire week and special Musikfest hours for the Main Library are in effect – they can be found here.

ALL materials must be returned on due dates this year. For your convenience, book drops are open 24/7 at the Main Library, but at the South Side Branch the book drop is only open when the Branch is CLOSED! And, speaking of “closed”, the Branch will close early at 5pm on both Tuesday and Thursday. Otherwise Branch hours are as usual.

Enjoy Musikfest if you are going, and remember, that the Library offers a quiet refuge or a ton of great programs and materials for your enjoyment as well.

Bookmobile will be late
