Because of limited storage space, Bethlehem Public Library cannot accept book donations. Please use the Better World Books bin located in the library parking lot. Better World Books generates funding for leading literacy initiatives around the world. A portion of the proceeds from BWBs online sales benefits our library Friends. If the bin is full, please do not leave your donations outside. Other local BWB donation sites are listed on the bin. Please note that this bin is NOT a library book return.

Friends of Bethlehem Public Library

The mission of our library Friends is to increase community awareness of library services, offer cultural and educational programs, and assist with special projects. Support the Friends annual member appeal or make a special donation at any time.


If you are an adult with a few hours to spare, or a teen who needs community service credit, volunteer opportunities await at the library. Choose ongoing involvement or an individual project; either way, it's a win-win situation for you and your community.
