Allentown - Allentown Public Library

1210 W Hamilton St.

The Library invites you to participate in a new discussion program called "American Life Stories." Learn more about the American experience in contemporary memoir. Join a small book group from your community to talk about James McBride's The Color of Water: A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother, Esmerelda Santiago's When I was Puerto Rican, Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, and Frank McCourt's Tis: A Memoir, with Christine Golbeck, MFA-IA. The program is free, open to the general public, and requires no special knowledge of American literature or history. Participants will receive their own copies of the books.

Great library that's been serving the community very well for many years.

A nice library, very spacious, friendly staff, has great books. I work in the library every day and see there very often the same people who do nothing, looks like they have nowhere to go, they sleep there, chat, just kill the time and many of them are smelly and seem to be homeless. This gives an unpleasant impression, guess, people who are just hanging around should be asked to leave the place. If not this fact, the library is great!

Good place to read. Also provides programming for children. Wish the chairs were a bit more comfortable though.
