Zoey and Cali Steffy were excited to be able to visit the library and pick out library books.

Do the Monster Dash to support the Tunkhannock Public Library.

The library will be hosting a virtual Monster Dash 5K Walk/Run. Run or walk a virtual race at any destination of choice and receive a SWAG t-shirt and goodie bag included in the registration fee. Still want to support the library, but can’t run or walk the 5K? Select “Neither” when choosing a race to enter in order to process a gift to the library. Register on the library’s website at https://www.tunkhannocklibrary.org/monster-dash-5k-walk-run.

The library would like to thank everyone who came out to its October book sale. The sale brought in a profit of $1,300 to the library. Cooper’s Corner Bookstore will hopefully be opening again soon. Just as a reminder the library is not accepting book donations at this time.

Make a difference while shopping Amazon Prime Day deals on Oct. 13-14. Simply shop at smile.amazon.com or with AmazonSmile ON in the Amazon Shopping app and AmazonSmile donates to Tunkhannock Library Association.

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.

Join for virtual storytime every Wednesday with Miss Angela! Get ready for a time of music, reading and crafts about a selected weekly theme. This week’s theme will focus on possible pets. Patrons can find these programs on the library’s website, Facebook or YouTube page, along with previous programs that were offered.

Donations to the memorial book fund were given in loving memory of Karen Rowker and Penny Davis by Tom and June Kukuchka and Julia Landon by the Eatonville United Methodist Church Service Class.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the library will not be having its annual Halloween Bash, Ladies Night Purse Bingo, and Christmas Show events this year.

The library hours are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.; Wednesdays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; and Saturdays, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Face coverings are required for all patrons over the age of two and must be worn for the duration of their visit. 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 Saturday, 10:15 a.m.-3:30 p.m.. Those with questions can contact the library by emailing TunkhannockLibraryDirector@gmail.com or by calling 570-836-1677. The library is a Wyoming County United Way grant recipient.
