Although the library does not have space to store donated books, our annually updated list of book donation sites (pdf) will tell you where to bring them.

Friends of Bethlehem Public Library

The mission of our library Friends is to increase community awareness of library services, offer cultural and educational programs, and assist with special projects. Support the Friends annual member appeal or make a special donation at any time.


If you are an adult with a few hours to spare, or a teen who needs community service credit, volunteer opportunities await at the library. Choose ongoing involvement or an individual project; either way, it's a win-win situation for you and your community.

memorial gifts

The library is pleased to receive monetary donations for the purchase of memorial books. Every effort is made to select an appropriate purchase in a subject area designated by the donor. Find out more about this and other memorial gift opportunities.
