Ms. Holly excited to provide fun activities for kids

LAURA JAMESON/THE EXPRESS The Ross Library is filled with age-appropriate materials.

LOCK HAVEN — She’s had a bit of a unique start to her job as the Ross Library’s Youth Services Coordinator, but that hasn’t deterred Holly Eisaman.

Known as Ms. Holly by the kids who attend activities at the library, or pick up books in the children’s section on the second floor, she was hired in 2021.

“I love the job, I’m very enthusiastic. I think that’s the word used to describe me,” she said.

Having lived in Lock Haven all her life, Ms. Nancy is extremely familiar with the area — and the library, too.

“I basically raised and educated my son with these books and with Ms. Nancy’s help,” she said.

Nancy Antram was the previous coordinator who retired in February 2021 before Ms. Holly took the reigns.

Prior to taking on the role, Ms. Holly said she utilized the second floor children’s library a lot while home schooling her son.

“I’ve created curriculums from first grade all the way to his senior year, so I know the collection very well and I think that helped Nancy make the decision,” she said. “I adore everything that she put on the shelves.”

Prior to become the youth services coordinator, Nancy substitute taught at the Bellefonte Area School District.

She attended Lock Haven University, earning a degree in sociology, psychology and education.

During her time volunteering at the library, Ms. Nancy helped with the end-of-summer carnivals for five years; the 1,2,3 program and has become familiar with the books and patrons during this time.

Ms. Holly is brimming with excitement and a notebook full of ideas. So full, even, that she sometimes has difficulties fitting them into her schedule. And she’s ready to help your children learn and have fun while doing it.
