Whitehall library: Meet your local heroes Aug. 8

Wednesday, August 2, 2017 by The Press in Columns

From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 8, you will have a chance to meet some of the everyday heroes who keep us safe on a daily basis. Our guests will include Whitehall Township’s fire and police departments, Cetronia Ambulance Corps, Lehigh County’s deputy sheriff and local K-9 police. We will even have a MedEvac helicopter!

Come to the library picnic area and parking lot.

There will be a party for all of the children who participated in the summer reading program. It will be held 11 a.m. Aug. 12 at the library.

Reminder: Books for toddlers to second-graders must be logged by Aug. 1. For participants in grades 3-12, the deadline is Aug. 7 .

The Friends of the Whitehall Township Public Library group invites the public to attend its regularly scheduled meetings 10 a.m. on the second Friday of each month in the library’s community room.

The next meeting will be Aug. 11.

At 6:15 p.m. Aug. 15, we will have our third Tuesday movie night — “Boss Baby” (rated PG). A suit-wearing, briefcase-carrying baby pairs up with his 7-year-old brother to stop the dastardly plot of the CEO of Puppy Co.

Come to the library to watch a movie!

Our third Monday open mic and jam night will be 6:30 p.m. Aug. 21, and our special guest will be Kayla Avitabile. For Sept. 18, Tom Cooney and Donny Goldman will be here.

Entertainers interested in performing three songs or a 15-minute set are asked to sign up just before 6:30 p.m. Musicians, singers, poets, comedians, actors, writers, storytellers, etc., come show off your stuff! We also welcome you to come and just be part of the audience.

Thank you to Rocking the Valley Online Radio!

Open to all teens and adults, the library’s beading club meets 6:30 p.m. Mondays and 1 p.m. Fridays. Marty Beaton is donating supplies, so visitors and new members can try it out free of charge.

You don’t need to commit to every club meeting; just come as you will.
