Clymer Library Seeks New Member for the
Board of Trustees

The trustees of the Clymer Library are seeking a resident of Tobyhanna or Tunkhannock Townships to become part of the library’s board. In addition to being passionate about helping the Clymer Library continue to grow as a resource to the community, applicants should have experience in one or more of the following areas:

Finance/Accounting Expertise – Working with the library director, the board’s finance committee is responsible for guiding the fiscal management, capital expenditures, and budget preparation for the library.
Marketing/Public Relations Experience – The marketing committee develops and executes all press releases, fundraising campaign communications, and contact with media outlets to promote the many programs and other library activities.
Non-profit Fundraising – As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Clymer Library relies on community donations, grants, and various fundraising events that require creativity, planning, and coordination with library staff and volunteer management.
Facilities Management – The facilities committee assists the library director with day-to-day facilities issues involving contractors and vendors for building and grounds. The committee also assists in the planning of future renovations and refreshing projects.

If you or someone you know has relevant experience in any of these areas and is willing to join a working board, please contact the Library at (570) 646-0826 for more information on the application process.




Please Welcome Our New Library Director

“The Clymer Library Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of our new Library Director, Anne Hogya. After interviewing a number of qualified candidates for the position by our Search Committee, the Board unanimously approved their recommendation of Anne based on her 22 years of library management experience in New York and Pennsylvania and her commitment to furthering the community outreach and increased program development at Clymer. Anne has most recently been Library Director at both South Country Library in Belport, New York and Pittston Area Memorial Library where she introduced various education programs and tripled program offerings while overseeing construction of a new addition doubling the size of the library. Anne also has extensive experience in grant writing and other important fundraising activities needed to supplement tax revenue. She resides in Buck Township with her husband and is an avid gardener.

Anne inherits a dedicated staff and volunteers who have worked diligently to maintain patron services during the search. They are ready to hit the ground running with our new Director. Please join us in welcoming Anne and be sure to say hello next time you visit Clymer Library.”


Farewell Laura!

A large group of patrons and friends assembled on Monday, May 15, 2017 to bid farewell to our Library Director, Laura Laspee, who will be starting a new position as Branch Library Director in Panama City Beach, Florida. Board President, Frank Cacchione, presented Laura with a plaque from the Trustees as a small token of gratitude for her almost nine years of service and dedication to the patrons of the library and entire community. Laura will be missed and we wish her all the best in her new position.


Clymer Honors Trustee for Meritorious Service

“The hours are too many to count. The quality of leadership was unsurpassed.” These are just some of the words of recognition given to Dr. Mark Tieszen for his years of service to the Clymer Library.

During its September meeting, the Clymer Library Association’s Board of Trustees recognized the contributions of retiring trustee Mark Tieszen. Board President Frank Cacchione remarked, “As president, Mark guided the board in formulating its vision and plans to maintain our mission as a community resource center for our patrons and all residents of Tobyhanna and Tunkhannock Townships.”

Dr. Tieszen joined the board in 2008. He served as president of the board from 2012 to 2014 and chaired the board’s governance and facilities committees. As part of his governance duties, Mark participated in the process of finding new Trustees when terms expired.

All trustees at the Clymer Library volunteer their time in support of the library. Mark has agreed to remain involved as a volunteer advisor to the library’s facilities committee.
