To the Parkland Community Library Community,

The Parkland Community Library is currently closed due to safety concerns associated with the South Whitehall Township campus construction project. The safety of our patrons is of the utmost concern. Our closing, while sudden, was and is necessary.

While our physical location is currently off limits to the community, library staff is working behind the scenes to make our collection available and to prepare a temporary space for library services. The library has secured temporary space in the Roma Corporate Center (1605 North Cedar Crest Blvd. Allentown) and is preparing to reopen there as soon as possible in early spring. In the meantime, we would like to remind everyone that the library is a proud member of the Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative (LCLC) and materials can be accessed at any of the other participating libraries.

For updated information about programming, construction updates, returns and due dates, and all that’s available to you during this time, please visit our website at ParklandLibrary.org.

If you have any questions or thoughts, please contact the library at 610-398-1361 ext. 22 or jackd@parklandlibrary.org.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we deal with this unexpected challenge and we apologize for this necessary temporary closure. We’re excited about serving you both in our temporary location at Roma Corporate Center, as well as when we return to our expanded, renovated South Whitehall Township Location later this year.

Sincerely,

Barry G. Cohen

President, Parkland Community Library Board of Directors
