Bethlehem Area Public Library will be closed for the Independence Day observance on Friday, July 3 and Saturday, July 4. The book drops at the Main Library and the Branch will be open. No library materials are due.
We are expecting 800 children TONIGHT from 5 to 8PM for a ticketed author signing in partnership with Moravian Book Shop. Parking will be at a premium. We are giving everyone one day of grace because we know it will be difficult for our patrons to get into the Main Library to return books, etc. NOTHING WILL BE DUE TODAY!
BTW the tickets for the event are sold-out.
Today is the beginning of the Book Fair Week at Barnes & Noble. Through Sunday, if you mention the Library or even better, bring a voucher that we are handing out at all of our locations, the Library will receive 10-20% of each purchase. We benefit from music, movie and food sales, (only at the cafe at Bethlehem Twp. store near Freemansburg Ave. & Rt. 33) too!
To encourage your participation, we have activities planned each day at the Bethlehem Twp. store. Tonight from 6-8 PM is the inauguration of Bethlehem Stories. Record your memories of growing up, going to school, raising a family or working in Bethlehem (or nearby). The Library will archive these recollections!
If you don’t have a voucher yet, we will hand them out during our events at the store each day. For the full schedule, click here…
