Happy Labor Day. It’s hard to believe its September! This year has been flying by but we hope you’ve been able to enjoy every moment of fun more than the next and that you’ve had some great experiences at our library this summer.
Aside from our core programming, we have a full lineup of special events coming up this Fall and we’d love to see you at them. Mark your calendar!
Please stop in the library and speak with one of our staff members or call us at (570) 587-3440 if you have questions about any of these events.
*We are still looking for community cooks for our Tasting by the Book III:All Around the Table event on October 21st. If you’d like to be a community cook, call us or stop by our PR table or circulation desk for a survey to complete. The deadline for cooks to return the form and recipe is September 21st.*
