Library ‘fines’ benefit women’s center

LOCK HAVEN — Over the holiday season, the Ross Library found a creative way to donate to the Clinton County Women’s Center.

Folks who found themselves stuck with fines from overdue library rentals were given the option to simply donate items that would benefit the Clinton County Women’s Center instead.

A wide variety of items were donated, ranging from canned foods and personal hygiene items to children’s toys and crayons.

The Clinton County Women’s Center thanked the library for coming up with this creative idea and the donors of these items for their support.

Paranormal fundraiser for Ross Library

LOCK HAVEN — As a fundraiser for the Ross Library, paranormal investigator Lou Bernard will be giving two paranormal tours of Lock Haven.

In a rare non-October paranormal event, the library will hold one afternoon and one evening tour. The first tour will be a family-friendly tour at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 28, and the second tour will be at 7 p.m. the same night.

Each tour is $3 per person. The tours will take about an hour, and begin at the library. Each tour will show some of the haunted locations in the community and also cover other paranormal events, such as fireballs from the sky, UFOs, and flying monsters.

Each tour will have some stories that have never before been told to the public. All stories will be researched and historically authentic.

Bernard is a staff member at the Ross Library, a historian in Clinton County, and a paranormal investigator with the Lock Haven Paranormal Seekers.
