Chichester Town Library News


We’ve had a few winter storms lately, which provides the opportunity to remind everyone that the Library follows the Chichester Central School in deciding whether to close for the day, or to have a delayed opening.  If you’re not sure, just call the library.  


A reception for the members of the Photo Group will be held on Saturday, February 18th from 9:30-11:30 a.m.  The exhibit “Photo-cation” is on the walls and the photographers should be there, as well.  Let us celebrate their great work. 


The Library will be open on Monday, February 20th for the convenience of patrons who have the day off from work/school.  


The Lovers of the Chichester Library will be meeting on Monday at 7 p.m.


Please see the separate article on the exciting, upcoming programs by Marina Forbes, an expert on Russian Arts, History and Culture, on February 24th and 25th. 



Chichester Library Offers Two Events On Russian Arts, History And Culture

The library is excited to welcome Marina Forbes on February 24th and 25th for two, separate (but related) events.  On the evening of the 24th, at 7 p.m. at the Grange, Marina will be presenting a program on the Imperial Russian Faberge´ Eggs.  These beautiful eggs originated in Russia, when Tsar Alexander III commissioned the first one in 1885.  The eggs became more elaborate over the next thirty plus years.  The eggs were crafted of gold and other precious metals and were often bejeweled.  The Imperial Coronation Egg is seen below and is considered the most famous of all of the Faberge´ eggs.


On the next day, Saturday, Marina will involve participants in painting wooden eggs and also in Russian story-telling.  Families, teens and children over six years of age would do well with this program.  It will also be held at the Grange and will be from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.  Some food will be provided by the library, considering the length of the workshop.  Word has it that Marina may also be bringing a Samavar (usually an intricately made metal container in which to boil water to make tea) and will help us start to learn how to make Russian pastries.


Marina is being sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council and the library.  There will be a $10 fee for the Saturday workshop to help defray expenses.  Please call the library at 798-5613 or e-mail to reserve a spot for the workshop.
