Free to all residents of the Pen Argyl Area School District, including Pen Argyl, Wind Gap, and Plainfield Township; $12.00 per year for those living outside of our service area.

Lending Period

Two weeks. All items must be returned by closing time on their scheduled due date.

Checking Out

The patron must present his/her library card to check out items. If a library card is lost, the patron must pay $3 to replace it.

You are allowed 5 items per library card (2 items may be new)


Return the items to the library before or on the due date to renew. New items with yellow stickers may not be renewed. Each item, unless new, may be renewed once if all fines are paid and no other patron has placed a reserve on it. Renewals may be done by telephone.

Overdue Fines

Fines are $.20 per day per item. If an item is not returned for 60 days, the patron is responsible for an accrued default fine of $12.00 per item, the cost to replace the item and a processing fee of $5.00 per item. We accept only cash or checks for payments.

Book Reserves

Materials may be placed on reserve at no cost. When contacted about an available book that had been placed on reserve, the patron has three library business days to check it out. Book reserves may be placed by telephone.
