How Will Upper Nazareth Township Plan to  SLASH $50,000 
from Library Funding Affect YOU?
Upper Nazareth Township Supervisor Meeting
TOMORROW, December 4th @ 7pm
Upper Nazareth Township Municipal Building
100 Newport Avenue

THANK  YOU to everyone who attended the November 20th Upper Nazareth Township Board of Supervisors Meeting! 

We are sorry and frustrated that so many concerned citizens were turned away due to the building's capacity; our best suggestion is to arrive early, and please know that as people leave the meeting, spots will open and you can come inside.
The Most Frequently Asked Question:
How would this $50,000 funding cut affect me? 

To summarize, this cut would affect everyone who uses the library, and those who take advantage of our off-site programs and  participation in community events.


Specifically, the following would be curtailed for ALL Upper Nazareth Township residents, and reduced for every other patron:

  • Materials such as (but not limited to) books, newspapers, magazines, DVDs, etc.
  • Resources such as (but not limited to) museum passes, computers, printers, online databases (including, ebooks, Quello, etc.
  • Services such as (but not limited to) AARP tax preparation, inter-library loans, meeting room space, faxing, one-on-one technology appointments, etc.
  • Outreach such as (but not limited to) Nazareth Area School District activities, preschools, local senior centers, etc.
  • Classes such as (but not limited to) Cooking, DIY, Painting, Coding, Yoga, etc.
  • Drop-in Activities such as (but not limited to) story times, wee build, shake & boogie, maker spaces, etc.
  • Programs such as (but not limited to) Summer Reading, Reading to the Pups, Valiant Veterans, Library-led Book Clubs, Lehigh Valley Story Telling Guild, Bachman Players, Neill Hartley, etc.
In addition, the library would be forced to scale back, or cancel participating in community events, such as Nazareth Day and Christmas in Nazareth.

This cut affects YOU and everyone in our community.
Please plan on attending the crucial  December 4th meeting because  THE FIGHT IS NOT OVER!  There IS still time to make a difference, and sway the vote to fully fund the library!
  • You are encouraged to address your concerns and questions to the supervisors, even if you are not an Upper Nazareth resident
  • If you do not wish to speak, please attend because numbers are powerful; show the township leaders that they were elected to serve YOU. Show them a united front that supports the library's resources and services for the entire community.
