EMMAUS PUBLIC LIBRARY IS PART OF THE LEHIGH CARBON LIBRARY COOPERATIVE
In January 2019, after many years of coordination and cooperation, Emmaus joined with 11 other libraries to form the Lehigh Carbon Library Cooperative (LCLC). The LCLC gives patrons access to 12 libraries’ collections with one borrower barcode, including the options to reserve and pick up or return materials, renew their library card or register for a new LCLC card at any participating library. LCLC libraries have coordinated borrowing policies, billing standards and card registration procedures to create a seamless experience at any of the libraries. To upgrade to the new LCLC card, please bring your existing library card & photo ID in to upgrade to this new resource. If you need help please feel free to stop by the front desk.You can find the full policies and rules here. New for Summer 2020, you can now start your library card application online. Once you submit the webform, a staff member will contact you to complete your application and provide you with your card number, giving you access to all of the LCLC resources.
