Chichester Town Library
As many know, especially by reading the great article in the

happening this weekend, with its many additional attractions.
The library will be supporting this effort by staffing a booth with
gardening and garden-related books for sale—at used book prices, of

Tomorrow, July 27th at 10:30 a.m., the Audubon Society will be at
the library as part of the Summer Reading Program (SRP), “Build a
Better World,” to teach the kids about various birds.
Additionally, the participants will be making seed balls to help
build a better world for the birds, which helps to build a better
world for everyone.
The Teen Advisory Group will be meeting on
Saturday, July 29th. This group is all about helping to build
a better community (world). They have already done a
documentary on some of our more established citizens, which was
available for viewing last year. On August 12th, they will be

The Down Cellar Writers will be meeting on Monday, July
