We’ve changed the way we handle renewals. We are now automatically renewing eligible items that have reached their due date. This means you won’t have to lift a finger to have your loan period extended.
There are some exceptions, including materials that have already been renewed twice, those that have another patron hold, and high-demand non-renewable items like museum passes.
When you receive your due-date reminder, it will show the items that have been automatically renewed along with the new due date. You will also see which items cannot be renewed, so you’ll know exactly what has to go back to the library and what you can keep a little bit longer.
Looking to make a career change or kick your job search into high gear in 2022? Curious about your chances of being hired with the skills and experience you have today? Need guidance on what areas to improve to better your ability to get that job? Our librarians have compiled a list of workforce development resources that can help steer you in the right direction. Find it at www.bethlehempubliclibrary.org/workforce-development-resources.
Do you know your employability score? Visit our workforce development resources page and scroll down to JobZone to find out. Start by taking the “What’s my employability score?” survey and then explore the website for ways to help you improve your score and get that job.
pass it on!

There’s still plenty of time to take part in our Community Expedition for kids and families. Enjoy the outdoors this winter and explore our shared community and natural areas.
Stop by the Children’s Place anytime from now until Feb. 25 to pick up expedition supplies (stamp pad, journal and map) and start your journey. Visit the mapped locations at your pace and on your schedule. Keep your eyes peeled at each location to complete the activities before stamping your journal. Expeditioners will have a chance to explore places like the Pine Hollow Arboretum, Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail, Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy areas and more.
Have fun, stay safe and enjoy some fresh air with our Community Expedition. Before you know it, spring will be here, and you will have first-hand knowledge of all the wonderful outdoor recreation opportunities in our own back yard.
