  • Check out our Current Bestsellers shelves for a good read: fiction, mystery, biographies, nonfiction from the New York Times Bestsellers list and others


  • We've got DVDs: Looking for something to watch --  check out our growing collection of DVDs from Buffy, the Vampire Slayer  to The Blind Side, to The Color Purple -- there's something for all tastes.


  • Want to keep up with news from home -- we've got print newspapers from the local areas (Allentown, Easton, Scranton) as well as national newspapers from New York, Philly and Washington, DC. Check out our National Newspapers database to see what's going on around the country.


  • Are you a jazz aficionado -- check out all the LPs, CDs and other cool stuff in our Al Cohn Jazz Collection on the ground floor of the library


  • Meet your friends for a coffee or latte at our Food For Thought Cafe -- they serve Starbucks (they're only open during the regular school year so you'll need to wait until the fall semester starts to check them out).
