DELMAR, N.Y. (NEWS10)- The Bethlehem Public Library will be closing Friday, March 13 at 5 p.m. until further notice. Library staff will give updates on their website and social media.

“As a public gathering place, the library is exercising caution to protect the health of the people who use the library and the community at large. Closing the library is the final step in a tiered response to the growing coronavirus concern,” the library said.
