We made a mistake! Books and other library materials that were checked out on last Saturday and early Monday have the wrong due date of January 2. We are closed on Monday, January 2 to celebrate the new year. Therefore no library materials will be due that day. The due date will actually be Tuesday, January 3.
If you have any questions, please call 610-867-3761.
Our apologies for the confusion!!!

New York Times best-selling author, Elin Hilderbrand, brings her favorite things about winter in Nantucket to the Main Library on Saturday, December 10 from 2 to 4 pm. The public is invited to meet this delightful writer who has a talent for mixing drama, glamour and romance in her novels. Moravian Book Shop will have copies of her latest book Winter Storms, last of the Winter Street trilogy, on hand for purchase and signing. “The holidays wouldn’t be complete without a little family dysfunction, and Hilderbrand writes it well.” says Library Journal about her latest effort. “Winter Street Trilogy [will] get you in the holiday mood.” notes Kirkus Reviews.
