User-submitted facts and corrections:

  • Although the Lower Macungie library is the closest library to Macungie they will NOT let you get books from them unless yu have a library card from the Emmaus library. They turned me down flat when I tried to get a library card there! So if you are a resident of Macungie you need to go to the Emmaus branch and get a card from them before you can check out books anywhere else. added by BuffyG63
  • Lehigh Valley Hospital is 3.5 miles from Macungie and is the closest hospital. It is also a trauma center. Also, the National Hospital for Children in Crisis is not the name of that particular facility. The name of the hospital/organization for children is crisis is called KidsPeace. added by Bryan Nelson
