Public Library of Catasauqua: Catasauqua library launches new website

Wednesday, January 18, 2017 by The Press in Columns

Chock full of useful information, the Public Library of Catasauqua invites you to spend some time browsing its new website’s many categories of resources.

Made possible by the generosity of board of trustees member Del Bollinger and the commitment to excellent service of site developer DAY Vision Marketing, the library’s web site hopes to be your go-to resource.

There are actually many separate categories of links to everyday useful information and, in many cases, you will find expert advice. From e-books to legal forms, to how to contact local and state governments, to authoritative medical information from the Harvard Medical School, answers to your questions are a click away.

Some online resources require authentication. Contact the library at 610-264-4151 to be assigned a personal password.

Eventually, the library’s collections will also be online, once those collections have been automated. That process has already begun.

For now, however, just about any question you may have can be answered by one or more of the authoritative resources that are organized under the category “Online Resources.”

The site also offers a monthly calendar of library events, as well as a collections section that features new books and short biographies of popular authors.

Readers are also able to donate to the library directly from the site. You will find information on why your donation is important, as well as very much appreciated.

There are many ways to participate in the life of the library!
