Due to its prohibitive cost, HAPL was forced to to drop the Chilton Auto Repair online database, but there is an alternative database (Auto Repair Source) available by clicking the link for POWER Library on this website.  The library's book collection includes many past Chilton manuals, although the titles have ceased publication in hard copy.

During this closure, patrons can only reserve/check out materials from the pickup location. Patrons cannot reserve materials from other Luzerne County Library locations at this time as there is no delivery between libraries.

Hazleton (Main Library) is offering Curbside Pickup from our Mobile Printing Station. For instructions and assistance, either call or search our website (above)/Facebook page. After sending, please give the library a call during business hours and a staff member will confirm your printing and schedule a pickup time during the call. Printing costs 10 cents a page and printing is black and white.

A valid library card is required for materials checkout. Anyone may use our mobile printing service; no library card is required.

Staff will be available during our regular business hours at each location to answer questions, take curbside pickup requests, and receive honor and memorial book requests.

No donated materials can be accepted at this time.
