Ross Library events include paranormal lessons

LOCK HAVEN — Learn to investigate the paranormal with Clinton County’s foremost ghost-hunting team! The Lock Haven Paranormal Seekers will be appearing at the Ross Library at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 31, to teach how to scientifically investigate the paranormal. The lesson will focus on what equipment to use, how to research, how to find measurable evidence in a haunted building, and how to tell a responsible paranormal investigator from a con artist.

Seats are $5 per person, and money will be taken at the door. Pre-registration is available, but not required. For further information or to register, please contact Lou Bernard at 570-748-3321 or

Other events to come include:

r Geocaching is a sport played by finding hidden containers with a GPS. It’s free and enjoyable, and on Jan. 26, at 2 p.m., 10-year geocacher Lou Bernard will instruct new players in how to join in the fun. Whether you are brand-new to geocaching, or have tried it but have questions, please feel free to come by and learn.

r Each February, the Ross Library celebrates Library Lovers’ Month with “Blind Date With A Book.” Books will be on display and available for checkout, but they’ll be wrapped up in paper, so the contents are unknown. Books will be marked with the genre, such as “mystery” or “science fiction,” but the author and title will be a surprise.

r Greg Zinner, marathon runner and author of the fictional book “The Long Run Home” will hold a presentation for the Ross Library on Feb. 21 at 6 p.m “The Long Run Home” is a story of one man discovering himself on the back roads of Pennsylvania. Zinner will discuss his book via Skype from his home in North Carolina, and take questions from the audience.

r The library welcomes everyone into the monthly book club, the Book Brigade. On the last Saturday of each month, the club meets at 10 a.m. to discuss a book and its related topics, drink coffee, and socialize. On Jan. 26, it will be “My Story” by Elizabeth Smart, and on Feb. 23, “I Am Scout” by Charles Shields.

Unless otherwise stated, all programs are free and open to the public. To register for a program or get more information, contact the Ross Library at 570-748-3321 or The Annie Halenbake Ross Library is a member of PA Forward and is a Clinton County United Way partner agency.
