Happy Retirement Deb Golumbfskie!

Today the library bids farewell to longtime employee Debra Golumbfskie as she enters a well earned retirement. Deb has dutifully served library patrons and the community for 29 years within her position at the library and we all wish her the very best as she begins this new stage of life.

If you see Deb, be sure to wish her a happy retirement and thank her for her years of service to the community and her work in helping to satisfy the educational, cultural, and social needs of our residents!

Bookshelves Wanted

Is there a bookshelf currently in your possession that you’re looking to get rid of? Instead of sending it off to the dump, make a contribution to your local library by donating it. Increased shelving space will allow our library to continue growing for years to come!

To see if your bookshelf unit is something that we can utilize at the Shamokin-Coal Township Public Library, please feel free to reach out on Facebook through our page or by emailing

Visit Your Local Public Library

It’s never been easier to get a free library card at the Shamokin-Coal Township Public Library!

As long as a child is at least 3 years old, resides within Northumberland County and is accompanied by a parent/guardian carrying two forms of identification, they’re eligible for a free library membership/card and the endless opportunities that it offers.

Adults who wish to sign up for a card must simply be county residents and present two forms of identification (piece of mail, change of address card, driver’s license, etc.).

If you haven’t visited your local public library lately be sure to come see us and witness how our organization is continuously growing as an information hub and community asset for all!

What a wonderful turnout for Book Bingo last night! Our special theme this week was all things Earth/conservation in honor of Earth Day. Our next rounds of Book Bingo will be held May 3rd (Tuesday) and May 19th (Thursday) at 6 PM upstairs at the library!
