Commissioner Hikes across Columbia County to Pay Off New Bookmobile

Columbia County Commissioner Chris Young is hiking about 50 miles from the top to bottom of the county from June 22-26 to raise $100,000 needed to pay off the new bookmobile for the Columbia County Traveling Library, which serves rural residents who don’t have access to a traditional library in their communities.

-The Columbia County Traveling Library has been bringing the library on wheels to Benton, Millville, Mifflinville, Catawissa, Numidia, and other rural communities for nearly 80 years.

-Commissioner Young has served on the board of the library for 20 years.

-Area residents can learn how to sponsor him at www.travelinglibrary.org, and they are invited to ‘crowdfund’ by asking their friends and family to donate also.

Commissioner Young is hiking daily from 10am to 4pm every day starting on June 22. He hopes to finish on Friday, June 26. He says, “It will be fun to walk through the communities I have served as Commissioner for more than 20 years. I hope people will sponsor me to help pay off our great new bookmobile. The Traveling Library is a fantastic community resource because it serves everyone in the community. Helping the Traveling Library helps our neighbors in Columbia County.”

Commissioner Young is also an author of one of the books in the library, Hiker and the Stranger, by C.E. Young. He is available for interviews before and during his hike. Monday June 22 at 9am was the kick-off in the Benton area. Photos and videos will be posted throughout the week on the library’s Facebook page. A photo gallery of life on the bookmobile is posted here.

People can donate online or send a check. Checks may be made out to ‘Friends of the CCTL’ and mailed to 702 Sawmill Rd., Ste. 101, Bloomsburg, PA 17815.

Major sponsors of the bookmobile are: The Columbia County District Attorney ($50,000 grant from reclaimed drug money); PPL Foundation ($20,000 grant); and First Columbia Bank ($10,000) along with many other businesses and organizations. About 125 community members have contributed $25,000 so far.
