It’s official! The Public Library of Catasauqua just got a whole lot bigger.
As a member of the Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative (LCLC), the Public Library of Catasauqua  is now able to “resource share” over 500,000 library materials.  On our Catalog Page, either in house at the Library or from the comfort of your home,  patrons can search the collections of the following eleven LCLC libraries: Catasauqua, Coplay, Dimmick (Jim Thorpe), Emmaus, Lehighton, Lower Macungie, Palmerton, Parkland, Slatington, Southern Lehigh and Whitehall.

Let’s say you found a DVD that you have wanted to see for ages, but it’s in Lower Macungie.
Patrons may place a “hold” on items at any one of the LCLC libraries, and those  items will be sent to your chosen library destination for pick-up.  There are some exceptions, but very few. Reference books do not circulate, as well as some Special Collections and  “High Demand”  materials  that are brand new, that is,  less than 6 months old. Catasauqua Library, while part of the eleven member Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative, does remain your friendly neighborhood Library “where  everyone knows your name.” At the same time, your access to books, DVDs and Audio Books has  opened up into  an extensive, county-wide system.

And the good news just keeps getting better!
In a few short weeks, all eleven libraries that make up the Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative are going to issue their  patrons a new library card, a  “One Card” that is the only card you will need for library services in all eleven LCLC  libraries. Not only will patrons be able to borrow from all LCLC libraries, their “ One Card” will be the only  card needed in all LCLC libraries.  It doesn’t get better or easier than that.  Welcome, Catasauqua Library patrons,  to the new and greatly improved  LCLC Library World 2019!
