Ring in the New Year with Hoopla

Whether you like to ring in the new year with joyful noise and celebration, or reflection and relaxation, Hoopla has the goods. Go here to log in or set up your account and explore these curated collections and more!
(available for residents of Emmaus, Macungie and Upper Milford--or, check with your home library otherwise to see if they offer Hoopla.)


It's our favorite way to close out the year -- by revisiting our checkout history, our Goodreads profiles, and our memory banks to find the books, DVDs, TV shows, podcasts and more that entertained, enlightened, and moved us.

This year's list numbers more than 75 items, and--just like our small-but-mighty staff and volunteer corps--it's nothing if not eclectic. Aside from a penchant for fiction in general, and mysteries in particular, the choices cover a wide spectrum.

We hope you'll find some of your favorites there as well, and invite you to explore new territory by checking out something totally new and different from your usual fare.

Go here for the full list and see what you might like to add to your 2023 'to be read/viewed/listened to' list!


Don't miss the last two digital literacy classes!

Only two more classes remain in our digital literacy series!
If you want to learn how to use Zoom to connect with loved ones at a distance or to attend online events, join us for Video Conference Basics on Jan. 9. If you have an iPad or iPhone and want to make the most of its features and functions, you won't want to miss iOS Basics on Jan. 23.
Call 610-965-9284 or email to sign up.


Family fun in January

Looking for some fun and free things to do with your kids in January? We've got you covered. Bundle up and come on over for a movie, pajama day, game night and more...


If all the holiday frenzy kept you from checking out Ro Geseck's art exhibit at the library, we have good news. Her exhibit has been extended through January! Stop in and enjoy her colorful and eclectic paintings for a little dose of energy and inspiration in the midst of winter. Go here to learn more about Ro.
