The Nancy Kay Holmes Branch of Scranton Public Library began life in 1902 as a private subscription library. In 1914 it became the Green Ridge Branch of Scranton Public Library. In 2010 it was renamed to honor the memory of Green Ridge resident, career educator, public servant and community activist, Nancy Kay Holmes. Today this Library is a very popular stop for the residents of Green Ridge, Dunmore and beyond.
