• You're Invited! 
    Dear Colleagues,

    January 31, 2020 marks the 115th anniversary of John O’Hara’s birth. The Pottsville Free Public Library is planning to honor this anniversary with a week long celebration.

    We invite you to join us at the Pottsville Library on Thursday, August 15 2019 at 2 PM to discuss how we as a city can celebrate O’Hara’s legacy in our community. For example, the library’s book discussion group, the Page Turners, will read one of his novels and discuss it at their January 23rd meeting; this session would be open to anyone in the county to take part. It could even be a city-wide “One City One Book” discussion. A birthday party will be held at the library on Friday, January 31st, complete with birthday cake.

    What other events would you like to see happen that week?

    Please let us know if you will be able to join us in our planning session on August 15th. If there is someone you think would be interested in joining us to plan the event, please forward this to them or bring them with you. 

    We will be throwing a party in January, but it will be a lot more fun if you are celebrating with us!
