COMMUNITY HEROES DAY - THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 6:00-8:00 PM
Because September 11 falls on a Friday, when the Library is closed, we will be holding Community Heroes Day on Thursday evening. Once again, Emmaus Public Library will have fire trucks from different local fire companies, police officers and vehicles, ambulances, and a table for the child ID program. This is an important way for children to meet first responders in a friendly, non-emergency setting. Teach them early!
