Begins this Thursday, April 2 @ 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. Open to Adults. Looking for some intelligent interaction during this time of social distancing? Join us for our first session of “Novels and Nibbles”– a virtual book club where instead of reading the same book, we come together to discuss our current favorites and give each other reading recommendations. Grab a snack and share the titles that are keeping you sane and happy; we’ll swap ideas for the best literary escapes. Registration is required as spaces are limited. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your Zoom login information. We look forward to seeing you there!

We at the Scranton Library want you to know that we take the health and well-being of our staff and patrons seriously. For that reason, the Scranton Library will be closed to the public effective Monday, March 16th. Our book drop is closed, but be assured that no late fees will be charged while the library is closed. All of our programs have also been suspended.
As we all continue to navigate the current landscape and do our part for community well-being, we have made the decision to postpone our April book sale until further notice. Due to your amazing generosity, our little cottage has reached its capacity and we can no longer accept donations for a few weeks while we reorganize. Thank you for your patience. We’ll be back soon! In the meantime, keep reading and if you have any questions, please contact Laurie Gerard, Scranton Library Friends Book Sale Chair, at 203-640-3078.
