Chichester Public Library
The Chichester Library is rocking and rolling into this new
year. We are happy to report that circulation statistics,
i.e., the books and dvdís being signed out, have doubled within the
past two years. The library is, after all, part of the heart
of the town, where people come to meet, greet, share time over
common interests and get great reading material, as well as have
access to reference material.
Come on into the library to see the
ďPhoto-cation ExhibitĒ of the Chichester Photo Group. The exhibit
will stay up for two months, giving everyone a chance to come and
enjoy it. Itís a travelogue of a special kind, taking us many
places through the eyes of our fellow residents.
Tomorrow is the
Down Cellar Readers book group at noon. The books for this
past month were at the individualís discretion and will be reported
on and discussed from that perspective.
Monday, February 6th, is
the meeting of the Down Cellar Poets at 7 p.m.

two programs in late February with Marina Forbes, an expert on
Russian Arts, History and Culture. On Friday, February 24th at
7 p.m., Marina will be presenting a program at the Grange Hall on
the Imperial Russian Faberge Eggs. These works of art have a
history and story all of their own, one that cannot help but
fascinate us. Then, the next day, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.,
Marina will be leading a storytelling and hands-on workshop for
adults, teens and families with children at least 6 years old.
Here, Marina will be helping individuals to create an authentic
family heirloom and gift. Plus, the time spent as a family
will be one that will remain treasured. There will be a $10
fee for the Saturday workshop to pay for materials. Although
more information with be forthcoming, it is important you save the
Chichester Old Home Day
We held our first meeting on 1/18 at the Chichester Grange.

would love to have you join us at our meetings. Meetings will be
held the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Grange Hall in
Chichester at 6:30 pm. We hope to see you there!
