Learn the ins and outs of the library. See what happens behind the scenes. Help promote literacy. Meet new people. Gain work experience (looks great on job and college applications ;)) We do require a PA State Criminal Check and PA Child Abuse History Clearance (both of which are free).

We've had to reschedule Mariokart Madness to Saturday, March 18 @ 1 PM. We experienced technical issues (called a broken tv). We will be getting a new tv for Saturday, Hope to see you all there!!
I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a Happy New Year. We will have lots of new programming, new books and new fun things for you in the new year.
Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.
Jess, Chunk, and the road trip to infinity by Kristin Elizabeth Clark
The last time Jess saw her father, she was a boy named Jeremy. Now she’s a high school graduate, soon to be on her way to art school. But first, Jess has some unfinished business with her dad. So she’s driving halfway across the country to his wedding. He happens to be marrying her mom’s ex-best friend. It’s not like Jess wasn’t invited; she was. She just told them she wasn’t coming. Surprise!
Congratulations to Jared Fries, winner of our first Minecraft Virtual Event. The theme for this contest was a castle which had to contain a throne room and a library (of course!) Thank you to all the participants all your creations were fantastic!
The Teen Advisory Group or TAG is a group of teens, grades 6 – 12, living in the Northampton Area School District who are interested in having a say in what their library does for them.
TAG will meet monthly on the second Wednesday of each month @ 3:30 PM. Meetings are for group members to share their ideas, help plan future events/services for teens, and work toward making the library a teen-friendly space in our community.
First meeting will be Wednesday, September 14th @ 3:30 PM
