Family Night With

the Penguins and Tux!

Monday, December 2

6:00pm ~ 7:00pm

All ages are welcome. Space is limited!

Call or come in to the library to register all family members who will attend.


Players and Tux from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins will be presenting a lively, family reading program at the library.


The players will talk to the families about the importance of reading, about being a team player, and about their careers as professional hockey players. Tux will then entertain the children with his antics as the players read to the children.


So bring your questions along with your memorabilia to be signed and get ready to have some fun with the Penguins and Tux!

Join us at our next tween and teen pop up station to learn about the power of hydraulics (water or other fluids used to make things move)!

Build a hydraulic claw that works just like the games in an arcade! (Well, almost.)


Keep alert for our next Pop-Up experience, coming soon.
