See Herbie at the Penn College Library:

“Herbie, the Love Bug,” the iconic Volkswagen Beetle, will be on display in Penn College’s Madigan Library through the end of the semester. The car, used in “Disney on Ice” performances, is on loan from the William E. Swigart Jr. Automobile Museum in Huntingdon, among the supportive partners in the college’s automotive restoration technology major. Herbie, complete with expressive eyelashes and a hood that opens to reveal teeth and a tongue, was installed in the library to encourage literacy."

JOHN MOORE"The defiant Northumberland editor vs. President John Adams”


April 20th  
"In 1798 the U.S. government enacted the Alien and Sedition laws, which, among other things, made it illegal to criticize the president of the United States.
These laws didn’t sit well with Thomas Cooper, editor of the Sunbury and Northumberland Gazette. In June 1799 he published blistering criticism of the president. One of his readers sent the article to the U.S. government.In April 1800, Cooper stood trial in Philadelphia, charged with libeling Adams. Convicted, Cooper spent six months in jail.A retired newspaper editor, Moore will provide details of the case and tell why the news media today enjoys the freedom to criticize our government,"
