Even though the Library is closed, you may still access all of our eResources or download eBooks, magazines (Zinio), and music (Freegal). Take a leisurely stroll (rather, scroll) through the New York Times best seller link or the new books link on our home page. Reserve the ones that appeal to you. Or if you have a pressing question about research you are doing, click on Ask Here PA (at the bottom of our home page) for live chat with a librarian.
See you tomorrow!
And you may park in the garage on Saturdays, despite what the signs say! Just don’t park near the police vehicles. The book drop at the Main Library is open also. The South Side Branch’s book drop is only open when the branch is closed.
And for those attending this afternoon’s reception, we are expecting you!
Mother Nature is not cooperating and, once again, ice and snow is making it impossible for us to open. We do expect roads to be cleared for Saturday, but check this Blog again tomorrow before heading over to the Main or Branch Library. Remember that no materials are due today with this weather event closing.

The bookdrop is open.
A snow emergency has been declared here in Bethlehem and the falling snow is closing the Library once again today, Thursday February 13th. Up to 14 inches is possible, and could affect the Friday opening as well. Stay safe and off the roads and watch this Blog for updates. ALL programs are cancelled (although Bethlehem UNBOUND will be rescheduled) and no materials are due during this closing.
ALSO: I highly recommend you go DIGITAL from the comfort of your home and visit our eResources page. Downloadable eBooks, eAudiobooks, Freegal music, and so much more, is AVAILABLE regardless of closing or the snow. Check it out!
The Bethlehem Parking Authority also announced that the North Street and Walnut Street public parking garages, and street meters, will be free of charge for the duration of the snow emergency to accommodate parking needs. Cars must be removed from these locations as soon as the emergency is lifted. Residents are asked not to park on public parking lots due to the need to plow these lots.
