Welcome to Whitehall Township Public Library

Did you know?

  • Whitehall LIONS and other community organizations are sponsoring a Duck Race to be held on Sunday Sept 25, 2016 as part of Stroll on the Parkway Day.  The Duck Race will be at 1 p.m. on the IRT at Hokendauqua Park.  All proceeds go toward the purchase of a CCTV for the visually impaired patrons of Whitehall Township Public Library.  Tickets are $10 each and one ticket buys one duck. Each duck will have a number on it!  See attached flyer.

  • Did you know the library has MP3 Recorded Books? While these books are on CD media, they require a "mp3 compatible" CD player to play, or can be copied through a computer to an MP3 player. This collection can fit an entire novel on 1 disk! That means - no more changing disks on the highway! Cars.com reports: "Nearly all cars from this century with CD players have MP3 compatibility." Not sure if your CD player is able to play these? Check out an MP3 audiobook, and try to play it! The library has a collection of MP3 disks, and Overdrive has MP3 audiobooks available for download, as well.
  • The Library now accepts donations via PayPal. Use your credit card or PayPal balance to donate to the library.
  • The library digitized the Whitehall High School Yearbook from 1922 - 2014. We are able to provide copies on DVDs that can be displayed on a computer. Complete an order form and payment to receive your copy! Order forms are available at the front desk, the library will call when the copy is ready!
