New Hours: The library has new expanded hours. We're now open Monday - Thursday from 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. and Friday - Saturday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
2021 Summer Reading Program: Our "Tails & Tales" Summer Reading Program will run from 9 a.m. on Monday, June 7 through 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 14. See our Reading Programs page for more details. We now have a short survey for anyone taking part in the Summer Reading Program, so please click here to let us know what you think. We would really appreciate your feedback!
Inside the Library:
- See our About Us page for current hours.
- Per CDC and State Public Health guidelines, patrons who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear face masks and have them in place while on library grounds. All patrons must sanitize their hands when entering the library, maintain social distancing in the building, and only touch materials that they plan to check out. (We do not regularly sanitize toys, so kids play at their own risk.)
- You can return items to the drop box at our front desk during our open hours or to the yellow parking lot drop boxes at any time.
- You can come into the library to check out items, but we also offer a curbside pickup option.
Curbside Pickup: You can place holds on items by calling our front desk or using this website. To request items online, you can log into your account, search our catalog, click on the words "Place Hold" on the right side of the record, and submit your contact information. When anything arrives for you, we call you to schedule a pickup day. Then you can pick them up by coming to our side door during business hours and ringing the doorbell.
- The library will hold one more Kids' Quilt Raffle this year from Mon., August 2 at 9 a.m. - Fri., August 20 at 4 p.m.
- We constantly have a small selection of books for sale, and we'll have a larger Book Sale on August 27 & 28.
- When you shop on Amazon, go through Amazon Smile to generate donations for Whitehall Township Public Library. Any time you shop this way and choose us as your charity, we receive a percentage of your total purchase. In addition to shopping through this link on your desktop or mobile web browser, you can also go through the AmazonSmile Charity Lists in the Amazon Shopping app.
- Books: Due to the extremely high volume of incoming donations, we're not taking any more book donations until after labor day. Once we start taking them again, we ask that you limit yourself to up to three bags or boxes at a time. (We prefer them to be in bags or boxes instead of loose for ease of storage.) We take books and most other media in good condition, except for magazines, textbooks, encyclopedias, and VHS tapes. Please bring any donations to our side door during business hours and ring the doorbell.
- Other: We’ve posted our Summer 2021 Wish List. Thanks to everyone who donates!
- Check out our August Newsletter for more information.
- Visit our Research & Learn page for digital resources. You can access most of these from home with an Internet connection.
