Annual Read-In

On Saturday, March 14, Snowden Library hosted the 5th Annual Lycoming College Read-In. Eight student groups each volunteered to read aloud for one hour from The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald; to participate, the groups donated money to the Lycoming County United Way and raised $120! Our thanks to the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs for providing refreshments for the participating readers!
