The library has several resources for genealogy under the “Resources” tab on our website, and under “Genealogy”. Links include Ancestry Library Edition, HeritageQuest Online and Newspaper Archive.

Newspaper Archive was recently updated to include newspapers, mostly historical and non-current subscriptions, from all over Pennsylvania and New York. Create a free account, then use your library barcode to log in to “Newspaper Archive”.

This month we hope to start preschool story time in person. Please register on our website under “News” if you are interested in attending a story hour on Wednesday mornings (10:30 a.m.) on March 23 and/or 30. The number of places will be limited. There will be no appointments at this time.

Preschool Storytime Supports AP Forward’s Basic Literacy Stream | Pennsylvania Libraries Initiative.

We’re celebrating the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, which started earlier this month with Story Time program activity sheets available on our website, Download and complete one of our Iditarod activity pages: the “Husky Coloring Page” is for preschoolers and the “Iditarod Activity Sheet 2022” Q&A page is for everyone else ages (also available at the library loan counter).

Once completed, write your name on your Iditarod activity sheet and return it to the library before 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 20 to receive a small prize. We will raffle two winners for bigger prizes: one who completes a coloring page and one who completes the quiz page.
