On Tuesday May 26th, the Sullivan County Library will partially reopen for curb-side service.  People can phone the library (570-928-9352) to request books, DVDs, audio-books and other materials.  You will need to provide your name, library card number, phone number and the titles of the materials you would like to borrow. Check the library catalog for available items.

The library staff will pull the materials, sign them out on the individual’s library card, and then call you to let you know they are ready for pick up. 

When you arrive at the library, staff will bring them out to the curb for you.  All materials can be returned by placing them in the library’s book drop next to the front door.   

The library’s temporary new hours are:
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday 12-4 pm, Thursday 3-7 pm

Due to COVID-19 and ongoing restrictions regarding groups of people, the Library will not be holding a book sale this year. Please DO NOT bring books to the Library that you wanted to donate for the book sale…we don’t have a place to store them.

Thursday, May 7 – Macrame wall hanging

Artist Pat Arcaro is a flat-lander from Philadelphia and later Bucks County who moved to Sullivan County in 1985. While always interested in art, she never got to take formal lessons. She had some club-level instruction but most of her learning has come from testing the waters. Her art will be on display until April. All art is available for sale.
