Starting September 2nd, the Bishop Memorial Library and LCHS Museum will be open by appointment only on Tuesdays and Saturdays! Appointments will be limited and visitors must adhere to all PA and CDC Guidlines while on site. To make an appointment call 570-823-6244 ext. 2 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also continuing to perform research and genealogical requests online, now or anytime, for those who would like an off-site option. The forms are available on our website.
We are proud to now partner with NEPA Gives! Help the LCHS grow with a donation through the link below. NEPA Gives is a way donors may make secure donations to their favorite local nonprofit organizations through a secure online platform. Donations to participating nonprofits will be enhanced with bonus funds provided by NEPA Gives sponsors, making donor dollars stretch further! All donations are 100% secure and the entire amount of your donation goes directly to the LCHS. Many donations are even matched by sponsors as well, so you double your money!
