LOCK HAVEN – This summer the PALA Summer Reading theme is “Tails and tales” and the programs will feature animals! The Ross Library offers a full schedule of upcoming adult programs and invites the public to participate.
In-person programming is now available. Masks are mandatory for unvaccinated clients.
Origami kits are back at the Ross Library! Due to popular demand, the library is rolling out a brand new set of origami kits, available for free. Each kit contains ten pieces of origami paper and four new and different instructions for making animals. Kits are free and will be available throughout the summer while supplies last.
Are you interested in investigating Bigfoot? The Loch Ness monster? The moth man? Then this summer the Ross Library is the place for you. Paranormal investigator Lou Bernard holds “Cryptozoology 101″, a three-part course on how to scientifically study cryptids. Classes will be held at 5 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month throughout the summer. On July 8, the course will cover aquatic monsters; and on August 12, flying monsters.
Since 2011, local historian Lou Bernard has been organizing annual summer walking tours. Each tour starts at 7 p.m. Friday night at the Ross Library, lasts approximately an hour, and includes facts and stories about Lock Haven that can’t be learned anywhere else!

During the summer, the Ross Library will be hosting a Bird Watching Program on the Southwest Lawn! Sessions will be held at 10 a.m. on June 16, July 21 and August 18. Anyone interested is welcome to bring binoculars and a camera if desired, and join the staff on the lawn looking for birds!
Join the Ross Library in the quest for the elusive Susquehanna Seal, a mysterious creature spotted in the river since 1897! On Saturday July 24, paranormal investigator Lou Bernard will conduct three investigations at 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. Each will last about an hour. Participants will meet at the Ross Library and walk to the river. There they will test water samples and search for the Seal of Susquehanna. Bring a camera and binoculars if you wish.
During the month of August, the Ross Library will be hosting an online costume contest for furry friends! Take a photo of your pet in their favorite costume and email it to [email protected] The photos will be shared on the Ross Library Facebook page, and the best costume will win a prize! This program will run throughout August. The winner will be judged by library staff. All decisions are final. By entering, you authorize the Ross Library to share your photo on social networks.
The library welcomes everyone to the monthly book club, the Book Brigade.

On June 26, the book is “Hot money” by Dick Francis, July 31 is “Sick puppy” by Carl Hiassen, and August 28 is “How did I get this way” by Pat McManus.
