The mission of the Lehighton Area Memorial Library is to provide equal access to resources, programs,and services that improve quality of life by helping to fulfill intellectual, educational, cultural, recreational, civic, and social needs.
So how do we do this? We provide and we help.
How we Help
Our staff and volunteers help people apply for jobs, find social services, use online resources, learn about new devices and technology, navigate the internet, and meet so many other needs.
What we Provide
Our collection includes children’s, young adult and adult books, large print books, audiobooks, DVDs, magazines, newspapers, and online databases including the Power Library databases. eBooks and eAudiobooks are also available for our patrons. These can be downloaded to your computer, eReader, tablet, smartphone, or other mobile device.
You can place a hold on an item which is checked out and we can request items from other libraries. The library catalog is online for your convenience. You can view what you have checked out, renew your items, and place holds by signing in to your account. Sign in with the barcode on your library card and your PIN (the default PIN is the last four numbers of your barcode).
Within the library we have 5 computers that offer Internet access as well as MS Office products. Public WiFi is also available. Color and black & white printing, photocopying, document scanning, and FAX services are also available.
We also offer educational and recreational programs for all age groups. This includes a Summer Learning Program for children and adults, a Toddler & Pre-School Children’s Program during the fall, winter and spring months, and programs for adults such as a monthly book club and presentations on various topics.
Our Memorial and Honor Book program provides an opportunity to remember a special person or special event by placing a book in the library in their name.
We will assist you in using any of the services and resources that we offer.
We provide one on one instruction by appointment and drop in help with all our services as time and staff availability permits.
