On Dec. 1, the library will be participating in a global event called Giving Tuesday.
Every year, Giving Tuesday mobilizes people across the globe to give back and provoke change in their communities. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day and to empower people to make a positive change in the lives of others. Please consider partnering with TPL this Giving Tuesday.
The library would like to thank Jeremiah Johnson for his Lego set donation to the library’s programs.
Help the library stock the emergency diaper and paper goods pantry at HANDS. HANDS is an early childhood education hub, operating out of the former Mehoopany Elementary School. Items will be collected during library hours through Dec. 9. The library will be accepting products such as diapers, baby wipes, paper towels, tissues and toilet paper for the drive.
HANDS and the library have partnered to bring a new program to the community, Bedtime Stories. Access to this program can be found on both Facebook pages and the library’s YouTube channel. The library will be posting their story on Mondays at 6 p.m., and HANDS will be posting theirs on Thursdays at 6 p.m.
The library’s Knutty Knitters club is meeting on Zoom. This virtual club meets weekly on Thursdays from 7 to 9 p.m. Beginner and experienced knitters/crocheters are welcome to join. Many in the group also spin and weave, in addition to making other hand-crafted items. Those interested in joining can contact the library at TunkhannockLibraryMarketing@gmail.com.
Join virtual storytime with Miss Angela every Wednesday. Get ready for music, reading and crafts about a selected theme. Today’s theme will be the letter ‘D’.
The library’s eBooks are back. Download the library’s new app for eBooks and audiobooks called “Libby” and log in with a TPL library card.
Ancestry will be available for patrons to access from home until the end of the year. Log onto “my account” found on the library’s website to access this free electronic resource.
Library materials were being quarantined for three days after being returned to the library. After a recent study, the quarantine time frame has been upped to seven days. Patrons will not be fined for the days their items are in quarantine.

Computers are available, but patrons are limited to a 45-minute appointment per day.
The Fassett Community Room will not be available for the rest of the year and the director will revisit the subject come January.
Curbside service runs Monday through Friday from 10:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Saturday 10:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
