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.)
