A forgotten case evacuates The Memorial Library of Nazareth and Vicinity Wednesday afternoon and shuts down two blocks in the borough for about two hours.
The Memorial Library of Nazareth and Vicinity -- and 300 feet surrounding the library -- was evacuated Wednesday when a suspicious package -- the result of a teen's "Dumpster diving" -- was found in the lobby. The possible threat was determined to be unfounded, and there were no injuries. According to Mike Rinker, the borough’s emergency management coordinator, the call came in around 3:30 p.m. for the package that he described as a very old case, complete with reinforced hinges. An incident investigation report states that the suspicious suitcase hadn’t been touched or moved for three hours after being placed in the library. Causing more concern, Rinker added, was the library's summer reading program, which would have many children and …

Josh Berk, a 13-year veteran of Allentown Public Library, plans to 'get the lay of the land' as he takes over for retiring director Lynn Snodgrass-Pilla.
You might say that Josh Berk -- who will take over as director of The Memorial Library of Nazareth and Vicinity today, Jan. 17 -- was destined to be a librarian. Berk’s parents both worked as librarians. His father, Jack Berk, was well-known as the longtime director of Bethlehem Area Public Library. The young Josh Berk, however, had other ideas. “I grew up loving books, but when I was a kid I wanted to be a baseball player, not a librarian,” Berk said in a phone interview last week with Patch. Even after it became clear Berk would not make the big leagues, he did not plan a career in the library world. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science from Drew University in 1998. Then it came time to find a full-time job -- and …
