The Borough of Coplay will celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2019. We will be collecting memorabilia to display throughout the entire year.

If you would like to loan any items to the library for the entire community to enjoy, please stop in and talk to a staff member.

***

Don’t have a library card but want one? No problem! We will give first-time cards to any resident of the Whitehall-Coplay School District free of charge (children need to be age 5).

Just stop by the library with a valid ID, and in a matter of minutes, you will have access to a vast world of knowledge and fun.

***

Don’t forget the library also has many e-books and audio books available through the Overdrive system. If you are a resident of the borough and have a Coplay library card, all you need to do is contact us for your password. Then you can begin downloading items to your Nooks, Kindles, tablets or computers.

There are never any late fees for these items, and you never have to leave the comfort of your house to enjoy them.

***

Our next book sale isn’t until April, but we welcome book donations all year. We cannot accept VHS tapes, textbooks, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest condensed books or any materials that are dirty, torn or damaged by mildew or smoke. All donations are tax-deductible.

Donations may be dropped off during our open hours — call or check the website if you’re not sure.

For your safety, do not put books in the book drop box that is outside the library.
