Joyous News

One of our employees at the library, Nika, recently gave birth to a precious baby girl named Beatrice. We are all so delighted that the mother and the baby are both doing well and even stopped by the library to see us. Our congratulations to Nika and her husband Ethan!

Elf on the Shelf

Ernie the Elf has arrived at Shamokin-Coal Township Public Library for the season! All the little ones are welcome to look for Ernie on the second floor. But do be warned, Ernie is a very shy elf and is often hiding amongst the shelves. Visit the library, find Ernie the Elf, and receive a free book to take home for over the holidays.

Once you find Ernie’s hiding spot, remember to leave him there for other children to find!

Snowman Craft

We hope everyone had a festive time yesterday evening at the library creating custom snowman pieces! A special thank you goes to Jeanne Shaffer and the Northumberland County Council for the Arts for partnering with the library for this event.
