Coplay Public Library: Storytime, crafts planned for Thursdays at Coplay library

Wednesday, February 6, 2019 by The Press in Columns

Storytime with Miss Veronica is scheduled 11 a.m. Feb. 7, 14, 21 and 28.

After the story, there will be time to make a craft to take home.

You don’t need to preregister or be a patron. Children of any age will enjoy the companionship and benefit of someone reading to them.

Enjoy the free movie Saturday Feb. 16. The first movie will be “Annie” starting 11 a.m. The next film, “Runaway Bride,” begins 1 p.m.

The next time you visit a library, you will receive a new card! The 11 public libraries in the Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative are now linked by using the same card.

Bring all your library cards and your driver’s license or photo ID the next time you visit a library. Parents must accompany all children under 18 to fill out their registration cards.

It may take several minutes to merge your old library cards and process the new one, so we thank you in advance for your patience.

Will February be your lucky month? Take a chance by playing the library’s 50/50 raffle.

You can buy tickets in the library. The drawing will be noon March 1.

***

Stop in and check out our new book display, “Can my one-liner get me checked out?”

Books will be wrapped in blue paper with only a brief description. Take a chance and try one of our mystery books.

If you were lucky enough to have received an e-reader or tablet or gifted yourself with one for Christmas, you can access thousands of audio books and e-books for free through Libby, an updated version of Overdrive.

Access Libby through our website, coplaypubliclibrary.org. If you have trouble working with Libby, bring your device into the library and we’ll try to help.

***

Help us make a book review paper chain. Fill out a paper with the title and author of any book you read and give it a 1- to 5-star rating. We’re going to hang the chain all around the library.

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue will no longer be sending any tax forms to libraries. The department suggests taxpayers access all tax forms on the website, revenue.pa.gov.

If you don’t have access to a computer or printer, we will print them for you for a small cost.

***

We accept donations throughout the year for all our book sales. For your safety, please drop them off at the circulation desk during open hours, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Call the library at 610-262-7351 or see our website, coplaypubliclibrary.org, for donation guidelines. We no longer accept VHS tapes, encyclopedias or textbooks.

While we will make every effort to be open during the winter months, your safety is our primary concern. You can check to see if we are open by keeping an eye on the WFMZ StormCenter. We do not charge fines for any days we are closed for weather. You can also check our Facebook page for weather updates and fun facts.
