Members “Read Up” on Bloomsburg Public Library at September Business After Hours
While they didn’t do any actual reading (unless they checked out a book to take home with them after the event), members had an opportunity to meet and interact with several employees of the Bloomsburg Public Library, as well as a majority of its board and board members of the Friends of the Library at September’s Business After Hours. Attendees heard directly from library staffers and board members about what’s going on at the library, the various programs and services available to all patrons, and about the value of the library to the community.
Attendees also had an opportunity to enjoy some delicious appetizers prepared with care by several different board members and other volunteers. With September also being Library Card Sign-Up month nationally, which is intended to promote literacy, attendees also had the opportunity to sign up for a card if they didn’t already have one, and anyone else is welcome to stop in this month or anytime at the library to do just that.
Business After Hours provide regular opportunities to build business relationships while learning about the services offered by other Chamber members. The next Business After Hours will be held at Service 1st Federal Credit Union’s Elysburg branch, located at 196 West Valley Ave., Elysburg, on Thursday, Oct. 10, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. There will also be a second Business After Hours in October on Wednesday, Oct. 23 at Berwick Hospital Center, from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
