At this time, all public libraries in Pennsylvania are closed to in-house patron services. However, every public library in Pennsylvania that can offer “Curbside Service” will be doing so. The Public Library of Catasauqua is very happy to be one of those libraries.  Our “Curbside Service” is a contactless, rain or shine service that we will be offering until such time that the Library can reopen to patrons, perhaps as soon as Lehigh County goes Green.  In the meanwhile, Curbside- Contactless- Rain or Shine Service at Catty Library is an easy 5-step process that looks like this:

  1. With your Library Card in hand, call the Library at 610-264-4151.
  2. Let us know what you want to read. We are happy to help you.
  3. Give us your Library Card number, your name, and phone number.
  4. We will call you when your items are ready.
  5. Please pick them up from the table that is located just inside the Library door at the bottom of the ramp.


Patrons must wear masks to enter any area of the Library, including the foyer where the table is located for Curbside Service pickup. All library materials are sanitized between patrons, and your items are placed in a new bag every time you place an order.  Please return all items to the Book Drop.  Do not place returned items back on the table, because the items on the table are sanitized while your returned items need to be sanitized.  Curbside Service is available every day the Library is open at these times:

Monday, Wednesday and Thursday- 3-6:30

Tuesday- 11-5

Saturday 11-1


Sandra, Kathy, Daryl, and Amy are busy working on collection development.  Dozens of the new books that were published over the past three months were ordered and have been delivered. Literally, as you read this, they are being catalogued and made ready for circulation.  These books represent the latest works of the authors of contemporary fiction and non-fiction that you know and love.  Our goal is to close the gap between what you were reading in March and what is available to you in June. See you Curbside!
