Library Cards

Eligibility

Library cards are FREE for all residents of Lehighton, Mahoning Township, Franklin Township, East Penn Township, Parryville, Weissport, and Summit Hill, as well as ACCESS Pennsylvania members. All ACCESS PA members must be in good standing at their home library to receive a card at LAML.

Other residents of Carbon and Lehigh Counties may also register for a card at the Lehighton Area Memorial Library as part of the Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative (LCLC).

In January 2019, after many years of coordination and cooperation, we joined with 10 other libraries to form the Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative (LCLC). The LCLC gives patrons access to 11 libraries’ collections with one card, including the options to reserve and pick up or return materials, renew their library card or register for a new LCLC card at any participating library. LCLC libraries have coordinated borrowing policies, billing standards and card registration procedures to create a seamless experience at any of the libraries. To upgrade to the new LCLC card, please bring your existing library card & photo ID in to upgrade to this new resource. If you need help please feel free to stop by the front desk.

  • Borrowing of library materials
