2016 Collectors’ Crock Debuts with a New-Old Favorite

Crock16The 2016 collectors’ crock features the best of the old and the new, picturing the Library as it is today after the expansion that doubled its size in the ’90s. It sells for $40 and will join the four other crocks previously offered: Bloomsburg Public Library, Columbia County Court House,  the Town Fountain, and Bloomsburg University’s Carver Hall.  All five current crocks are available to order at the library.  100% of the profits go to the library!






 Our therapy dogs Chloe, Bella and Nellie are here on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. to help children practice their reading aloud skills.
