Chichester Town Library News


Easter is over, and we hope everyone was able to celebrate it in their own way.  We want to thank a few people who have been working hard for the past few weeks on events.  Thanks to Barbara Pappas and the Lovers of the Chichester Library who sponsored and staffed four time slots for teachers from area schools to come and select books, at no cost to them, that they would find useful for their classrooms.  Those who came were pleasantly surprised with the vast selection and left with numerous books in their bags.  


We also want to thank the Teen Group for hosting the Bingo and Bake Sale evening last Friday.  What a wonderful way to go into the holiday weekend.


Tonight, Wednesday, the first event in a series will begin at 6 p.m. involving the PJ Masks superheroes, Catboy, Owlette and Gekko. They do their sleuthing and crime fighting at night while the children are asleep.  Bring the kids and join us as the PJ Masks are introduced through an hour of reading/storytelling.  Additional events are being planned for the rest of April, too.


This Saturday, April 7th, is the first Down Cellar Used Book Sale of the season.  It starts at 8 a.m. and runs until 1 p.m.  We’re looking forward to seeing the regular clientele, as well as new patrons.  Shelving of books has been ongoing, so there should be a broad selection!  The theme of the sale is “Spring into Action.”  See you there!  (The book area downstairs will be closed to the public tomorrow and Friday for set-up.)


The Board of Trustees will be meeting on Monday, April 9th, at 4 p.m. at the library.  This is an open meeting.


The Evening Book Club will be meeting on Wednesday, April 11th, at 7 p.m. 


A special event is planned for Wednesday, April 18th at 7 p.m.  The library is sponsoring Rich Araldi in a vibraphone concert.  Please see the separate article on this. 


Copies of the Town Report are available at the library.

Mr. Araldi plays all types of music, including jazz and popular music through the decades, and even the big band/swing era.  He also intersperses stories, trivia and facts throughout the performance.  This is a family-friendly program and is free to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.
