Little Free Library Opens in Hellertown’s Water Street Park

Want to enjoy the feel of a good book between your hands on a warm, sunny afternoon in the park? If you’re visiting Hellertown’s Water Street Park you can now do that without the need to BYOB (“bring your own book”). That’s because the park is now home to a Little Free Library, where local residents can leave a book, take a book, or simply borrow a book for an hour or two while visiting the park or the adjacent Saucon Rail Trail.

Fix Water Street Corridor to Improve Walkability in Hellertown, Report Recommends

Borough resident and geographer Michael Sutherland told Hellertown council one change that would immediately improve walkability in town would be the installation of ramps at the intersection of Harwi and W. Water streets, which is located in between the Main Street corridor and the Saucon Rail Trail/Water Street Park. The recommendation is included in his A Plan for People: Walking and Biking in Saucon Valley.
