Easy COVID-19 Resource Guide for Patrons

Great Expectations at Allentown Public Library

January 2021

The library will be serving patrons via drive thru window pickup only.
Monday-Friday: 10am-4pm
Saturday: 10am-2pm

Beginning January 18, 2021, at noon we will be adding restricted walk-in service.

All patrons are expected to wear masks and to be considerate of others, maintaining social distancing guidelines. Our staff will do our part to provide you with services while maintaining increased cleaning protocols and the same guidelines that we ask of our patrons. Browsing for materials or computer use are limited to one hour per day. The mezzanine, local history room, periodical rooms will remain closed at this time.

In order to accommodate those who are uncomfortable visiting indoors, we will maintain drive-thru service. You may call 1-2 hours ahead to place books on hold, or place them on hold yourself using the MyAccount feature. You will be contacted via email, text or phone call (your choice) when your reserved materials are ready for pickup.
