Lunch and Learn Program

The State Library of Pennsylvania offers Lunch and Learn programs on a monthly basis. These programs are free, open to the public, and held at the State Library between noon and 1 p.m. Guest speakers from across the Commonwealth and beyond travel to Harrisburg and have presented on such varied topics as local history, the process of becoming a published author, and reptile rescue!

If you missed a program or want to experience it again, take a look below – we’ve compiled video recordings from recent programs.
