Fishing tackle at Library – Williamsport Sun

The James V. Brown Library is Lycoming County’s first sponsor site for the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s Fishing Tackle Loaner program. The library offers fishing gear for free loan, by using a library card. On loan are rods, reels and a tackle box full of hooks and other tackle for free. Twenty-five rods and reels are available for a two-week loan period by adults.

Borrowing fishing tackle is easy as borrowing a book! Those wanting to borrow the equipment complete a form and the loan is made. The equipment is returned to the site at the end of the loan period.

This program is a partnership between the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, the American Sportfishing Association, and the library.

The program is designed to make it easy for anyone to access fishing tackle. Whether you are giving fishing a try for the first time, or returning to a childhood activity, these sites provide a loan of free tackle. We hope that borrowers of the equipment will enjoy fishing so much that they are hooked for life.

Make sure to check out our Angler’s Alcove. This unique collection of fishing books, videos and magazines is a cooperative project of the Library and the Susquehanna Chapter of Trout Unlimited. The collection is one of the largest specialized collections in the state and is located in the Moltz Rotunda Reading Room.

The library also has a comprehensive PA WILDS collection of books, DVDs and magazines highlighting outdoor activities relating to this 12-county area in North Central Pennsylvania.

The collection features materials for adults and children, novices and experts. Books and DVDs on camping, kayaking, and hiking are available along with guides for outdoor activities such as photography, bird watching and flower identification. The PA Wilds collection is adjacent to the Angler’s Alcove.

The library is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and weekends from noon to 5 p.m.
