Chichester Town Library News


The library will be closed for Labor Day.


The collage of pictures of Lisa created by the Teen Advisory Group for display at Old Home Day can still be seen at the library.  Also, index cards for people to write down their memories of her will also be available.  There have been a number of people who were unable to “say goodbye” to this remarkable woman and this project may help in processing her departure, as well as helping others to know her as they did.  In the future, at a date to be determined, the library will host an Open House, at which time memories of Lisa will be shared.


The Poetry Group will meet on Monday, September 11th at 7 p.m. because of the Labor Day holiday the previous Monday. 


The Evening Book Club has chosen Uncommon Carriers by John McPhee for their next read.  As is McPhee’s style, this book is also about real people in real places, as he focuses on truck drivers, ships’ captains, towboat pilots, etc.  The books are available to be picked up now.  Because of a change in schedule for August, the September meeting has not, yet, been set.


The Photography Club has compiled a spectacular set of photographs for their calendar, looking at Chichester past and present.  It will sell for $20, with the proceeds to be donated to the Chichester Food Pantry.  If you want some great history of the Town, as well as promoting good, this is an excellent chance to do it.  The library will have copies to sell, as well.


The Trustees and members of the Lovers of the Chichester Library would like to thank the vendors who came out for the Farmer’s Market in conjunction with the August Down Under Book Sale, as well as our wonderful patrons.  We’d also like to thank and acknowledge Michael Edgecomb who has authored the children’s book To Fly on a Cloud.  He participated in our sale and market by holding a book signing.  Thanks to all.
