Hurricane Agnes 50th Anniversary

With the 50th anniversary of Hurricane Agnes and the ensuing floods upon us, the library invites you to take a step back in time by checking out the local news coverage of the events as they unfolded in June 1972. Covering the local Shamokin/Coal Township area as well as all across Northumberland County, these lovingly preserved issues of The News-Item offer a unique glance into the area’s collective past.

Thank you to Joe Rocuskie and Kathy Gonsar for loaning us these materials to share with everyone. The newspapers can be found on display in the library’s front windows.
