Give the Gift of Reading!
In this season of giving, please support the Traveling Library with a financial gift! We receive funding from the Columbia County Commissioners and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania that provides for very basic services, but we depend heavily on community members to help us put new books on the shelves! A $50 donation could add 5 books to the collection. Every donation counts. These books make a big difference to a lot of people. Thank you!
What’s New? Preview and Request New Books
Our librarians carefully select books for the collection from sources like book reviews, library journals, and book-related websites, based on our relationships with our community of readers. The books are added to purchase lists on Amazon and ordered regularly. We have made our purchase lists public so you can request forthcoming books.
You can preview the lists on Amazon anytime. If you see a book you would like to request, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the book you would like to read, or call 570-387-8782. We will notify you when your book is ready. It usually takes about one week from the time the book is ordered. In the case of bestsellers which have not yet been published, you will be added to a waiting list for when it comes out, and it may take longer.
If there is snow or ice on the road, please check our Facebook page or our online schedule for cancellations. We will post in both places as soon as a route is cancelled. If we have to cancel, books will be renewed and there will be no fines. Please stay safe this winter!
