Tell us what you think
Did you miss the library brainstorming workshop earlier this month? You can still share your ideas through our online form at www.bethlehempubliclibrary.org. Tell us how you think Bethlehem Public Library could serve the community in the 21st Century and beyond? Let us know your thoughts on the evolution of library services and how the library’s space can be used to best meet those needs. Paper copies of the form will also be available at the Information Desk.
On Wednesday, Jan. 8 at 6 p.m., library architect Paul Mays will go over the responses and talk about some of the ideas that emerged as priorities.
If you have any questions, give us a call (518) 439-9314.
Help for dementia caregivers
In partnership with Eddy Alzheimer’s Services, the library provides access to social workers through regularly scheduled Support and Guidance for Dementia Caregivers sessions, the next one of which is planned for Wednesday, Dec. 4. Social workers from Eddy Alzheimer’s Services will be available to speak one-on-one with caregivers of individuals with dementia beginning at 11 a.m. This service is funded by a grant from NYS Department of Health.
The library will close at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 27, and remain closed Thursday, Nov. 28, for the Thanksgiving holiday. The library will be open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29.
The library will be closed Friday, Dec. 6, to accommodate a staff development training session. Our bookdrops will be open, but there will be no telephone service. We’re always open online at www.bethlehempubliclibrary.org.
Storm and ice warning
In the event of inclement weather, the library’s telephone system will provide information on a closing or delayed opening. Weather conditions can occasionally cause icing near the entrances that could lead to closure even when the town roadways are clear. Call ahead at (518) 439-9314 if you are unsure. Information may also be available on our website at www.bethlehempubliclibrary.org.
