The Friends of the Library Present a Summer Literary Salon!

Bethlehem Area Public Library’s Friends of the Library will be holding a Summer Literary Salon benefit on Wednesday, July 21, 2021!

The Friends of the Library is a group of dedicated volunteers who raise money to underwrite the library’s innovative programming and support the library’s growth. A gift to the Friends supports:

  • Storytime, art, and STEM activities for kids of all ages
  • Life-long learning and community building for adults
  • Special events and guest speakers
  • Summer reading presenters and prizes
  • BAPL’s busy calendar
  • And so much more 

The benefit will be held virtually via Zoom and will feature a trio of local authors that will be discussing the local library and literary scene, their recent work, and more. Authors featured include Jennifer Gilmore (If Only), Joyce Hinnefeld (The Beauty of Their Youth), and Stephanie Powell Watts (No One is Coming to Save Us). The event will be moderated by author and Friends board member Kate Racculia (Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts). 

Registration is free and donations will be accepted during the event and can be made anytime by visiting the Bethlehem Area Public Library website at bapl.org/friends. Once registered, the Zoom link will be shared with attendees by 5 p.m. on the day of the event.
