Dear Public Library,

What a Covid roller coaster it has been. We just wanted to stop and say Thank You! In the beginning of quarantine we tried audiobooks and e-books but we were so happy when you opened your doors and let us touch the paper pages again. Thank you for greeting us with smiles under your masks and letting us reunite with our story friends again. Finally you shouldered on and kept the summer reading program and although it was not the same it still rewarded us for shouldering on as well. Thank you for helping us through summer 2020.

Hello! Just wanted to drop a note to say how helpful Amber was in helping me resolve issues with the overdrive/ kindle app. We love the service and she did a great job walking me through the process over the phone! Thank You.

The Southern Lehigh Public Library has been an integral part of our family’s lives since we moved to the area. Our children have benefited from all of the programs that have been offered throughout the year. Thanks in large part to Miss Melissa, we have seen our youngest daughter improve her social skills through the weekly interactive classes. We would like to commend the library for its seamless transition to online programming through the pandemic and we look forward to utilizing all of the library’s resources for years to come.

I hold a handful of places dear to my heart.  Some of them are part of a far off past, while others are currently visited with varying frequency.  Among these special places is the Southern Lehigh Public Library (SLPL).  For my family, it goes beyond the books. After welcoming our first child, I found SLPL to be a great resource for not only books, but also to make social connections with other families.  We have thoroughly enjoyed countless story times and library-sponsored educational programs for more than a decade.  SLPL has been a significant starting point for my five children to learn, sing, be an artist, and most of all, develop a love of reading.  I have enjoyed seeing each of them grow in so many ways.  SLPL initially started that feeling of community for me.  By the time school started, we already knew so many people from our library days – going as far back as infant storytime! In many ways, the SLPL has been an anchor for my family. When things needed to change in Spring 2020, SLPL changed and adapted.  While the “place” itself was missed, the staff brought the library to us in the comfort of our own homes.  These programs (and the people behind them) have been an amazing constant for our family, in good times and bad. Southern Lehigh Public Library truly is for everyone.  I think one of the greatest things about it is its inclusiveness.  You don’t outgrow it.  There is always that next level or stage that offers another opportunity.  I am forever thankful for its presence here in our community, and for the work and thoughtfulness put into every program. And yes, the books are awesome too.

My family uses the Southern Lehigh Public Library on a weekly (sometimes even daily!) basis and it has become a great resource for us.  My kids are all avid readers and enjoy browsing the shelves or the online catalog for their next book to read.  We homeschool our kids and the amount of recreational and educational books available to us through the Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative and the Overdrive system is astounding.  We also enjoy the friendly, smiling faces that greet us at the desk every time that we visit the library.  Thanks for doing what you do and allowing us the opportunity to access so many free resources in a fast and convenient way
