About Parkland Community Library

Celebrating 50 years! As of 2023, the library has curated a collection of over 100,000 items, including books, periodicals, audiobooks, movies, and more. PCL has partnered with Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative (LCLC). This partnership of local libraries in Lehigh and Carbon counties has made combining all library catalogs possible. Beyond books, Parkland Community Library continues to provide new, innovative, and convenient services that save money and promote lifelong learning and literacy. Museum Passes, Mobile Hotspots, Medicare Enrollment assistance, and many community events for all ages are just a snapshot of what the library offers. Join us for free programs in our newly renovated Allentown, PA campus! We look forward to serving you for many years to come.
