Here we go-into Feb. already!

 

This week, all Valentine merchandise will be 1/2 price.  Also, “look up” when you come into the store, there are many lovely pictures with nice frames on all the walls. These are all 1/2 price. 

 

There is a shelf in the first aisle. Look up to find small appliances: blenders, coffee pots, toasters, sometimes crock pots, and lamps.  1/2 price this week! 

 

Set your GPS for 345 Suncook Valley Hgwy, Chichester.  Mon. 8-12; Tues. & Thurs. 8-4; Wed. 11-4 & Sat. 10-4.  Please DO NOT leave any items/bags outside when the store is not open, a bag of stuffies was completely ruined two weeks ago as snow/rain from the roof got in.  Call 247-7191 if the weather is “iffy.”

Tomorrow, February 8th at 10:30 a.m. is the Pre-school Story and Craft “Hour.”  Those of you who have attended know how special this activity is.  But, for those of you who have not, I’d like to share a personal experience.

 

I am aware that the facilitator for this activity, Barbara Pappas, puts in endless time, energy, and resources to provide a wonderful environment for the little ones to hear stories, learn about the world, have fun with crafts, and even have a snack.

 

The day I attended, the theme was “Tracks.”  The young ones were greeted by a volunteer and her standard poodle, who came to share part of the time.  They then heard a story from Librarian Jackie Heath on pre-historic animals and the importance of sharing. The kids then went outside and followed the poodle’s tracks in the snow, coming back in to listen to a story about a poodle posse and, again, the importance of sharing.  All of this was followed by poodle cookies, a wonderful craft with cutouts and track stamping, as well as a general playtime.  It’s an awesome time!

 

Every Wednesday at 3:30 p.m., a crafty group of people join forces at the library for the Knitting Circle. Come for the camaraderie and bring your handiwork project.

 

There are still a few days left to make a valentine, or more, for our veterans at the NH Veterans’ Home. Your talents and efforts are welcomed.

 

Monday, February 12th at 2 p.m. is the Chichester-Epsom-Pittsfield Libraries’ Memory Café at the Epsom Public Library.  With a nod to Valentine’s Day, participants will be playing some trivia games and celebrating romance.  Caregivers and folks living with memory loss are invited to come and savor supportive socialization.

 

The Board of Trustees will be meeting on February 12th at 4 p.m.  Residents and patrons of the library are welcome to attend and express any ideas or concerns you may have.
