Who says the grown-ups get to have all the fun on Mardi Gras? Kids and families are invited to a very special version of this celebration at the library on Tuesday, Feb. 28, at 4 p.m. Come by for some games, crafts and a treat, and get ready to laissez les bons temps rouler (let the good times roll)!
Teens in grades 6-12 looking for some volunteer hours or those just interested in the warm feeling that comes from contributing to the community are invited to Spring Into Service at the library on Friday, March 3, at 4 p.m. Create some colorful spring-themed crafts that will brighten the day for our neighbors at Good Samaritan Village Senior Center. This program will take place in the Community Room.

Bethlehem Public Library takes very seriously its responsibility to serve the community by providing access to resources and programming that enhance the quality of life of our residents. Our trustees make this possible through their dedication and vision, and they fill a very important public service role that affects every tax-paying resident, whether that person has stepped foot in the library or not.
