Book drop

BOOK DROPS

  1. 24-Hour Book Drop: PCL’s book drop is located in the back of the building on the new extension. Use the second entrance off Walbert Avenue by the staff parking.
  2. North Whitehall Township Building: 3256 Levans Rd, Coplay, PA 18037 

The library will be picking up items once a week. You will not incur any overdue fees as we are now fine-free!

Parkland Community Library shall not be responsible for any materials left outside of the book drops. If any materials are lost, damaged, or stolen that are left outside, the patron will be held accountable.

The main entrance to the library is the same. 

Enter by means of the South White Township’s main entrance (One Way), turn right, and follow the circle to the front of the library.

Additional parking has been added to the front and side of the building.


COVID-19 GUIDELINES FOR VISITING AN LCLC LIBRARY

For the safety of all, we ask that people who feel ill, do not come inside. Patrons who are visibly sick or coughing/sneezing excessively will be asked to leave.

Masks are optional. *We will be monitoring case counts and this is subject to change.

The Parkland Community Library is following guidance from the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, which states that libraries can issue policies for use of local facilities as determined by county, municipal, or library decisions.

Thank you for helping to keep our communities safe!
