Looking for a vintage flip-top desk? Coaldale has a deal

Published January 11. 2012 05:01PM

About 1,000 old flip-top school desks stored in the Coaldale Complex are up for grabs.

Councilman David Yelito on Tuesday said the borough will likely sell the metal from the desks for scrap.

Fire Chief Richard Marek said his crew could hammer off the wood and use it in firefighter training.

But Councilman Joe Hnat said the public should have a chance to acquire some of the desks. There are three or four styles, Yelito said.

Councilman Tom Keerans suggested putting a notice on the borough's website, Those interested in obtaining a desk are asked to call borough secretary Louise Lill at (570) 645- 6310.

The complex is the former Coaldale High School, at Sixth and Phillip streets.
