Libraries are a cornerstone of democracy—where information is free and equally available to everyone. People tend to take that for granted, and they don’t realize what is at stake when that is put at risk.—Carla Hayden


Due to Covid restrictions, please call us to be sure we are open.

You may visit us during our modified hours. (Scroll down for days and times.) Masks are required. We also have curbside pickup for books ordered from our online catalog. Our book deposit is open. No fines will be collected, but thank you to those of you who are contributing in that way.


WELCOME!

Slatington Public Library's mission is to improve and enrich the lives of the residents in our community through information, recreation, and education, using both traditional methods and emerging technologies.
