Again, thanks to everyone who came out for the Down Under Bookstore Sale this past Saturday.  Your participation helps to fund the programs we put on for residents of Chichester and library patrons.  Whether it be the various programs in the Summer Reading Program, subsidizing a project by our Young Adults, paying for the Pontine Theatre and Dudley Laufman, etc., these funds add to the community life of Chichester.  Thank you.


Also, a big thanks to Mike Williams of Stoney Brook Farm for donating vegetables for sale at the Farmers’ Market, which was held in conjunction with the book sale.  Mike’s farm stand can be found on Main Street in town.


Also, as a vital part of the community, the library accepts donations for the Chichester Food Pantry.  Please bring your non-perishable items (no glass jars or other breakables) to the library and we will see they get to the pantry.

What is Competency Based Learning? Why is New Hampshire moving toward this new model of instruction? What are the principles of Competency Based Learning and instruction? Where is CCS in this transition and what will this look like for my child? These are all great questions we will begin to answer on Sept. 28th from 6:30 – 7:30 PM. This will be an opportunity for families to learn about this new model and ask questions as CCS makes strides in this direction.  Please join us for this evening.
