FNCB, locally-based for over 100 years, recently presented representatives from the Pittston Memorial Library, a member of the Luzerne County Library System, with a $918 donation raised through a bank wide “Jeans for a Cause” dress down day in April.
Founded in 1984, the Luzerne County Library System (LCLS) serves the approximately 320,000 residents of Luzerne County and is comprised of ten branches. The Pittston Memorial Library is located at 47 Broad Street servicing Pittston and the surrounding municipalities.
The organization was nominated by Karen Smith, Assistant Vice President, Commercial Officer.
“As a mother of a two year old, I value the importance of reading and the impact it has on a child’s development,” said Smith. We frequent the Children’s Room at the Pittston Library and enjoy the friendly environment as well as the activities offered. I am happy to support the library which is a valuable resource in our community.”
