Chichester Town Library News

 

Pre-school Story Hour resumes tomorrow at 10:30 a.m.    Stories and crafts, and even a snack, are the rules of this activity time.  Barbara Pappas is the skilled leader of this, with the assistance of some of the mothers.

 

This Saturday, May 5th, between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. is the renowned Down Under Used Book and Plant Sale.  A variety of plants are donated by Milliken’s Nursery, a Chichester business, with the proceeds going to the library.  This is a very popular event, so if you have something particular in mind to add to your garden and that you think will be a part of the sale, come early!  And, of course, there will be a wonderful selection of used books, puzzles, etc., at unbelievable prices.

 

The Down Under Used Book area will be closed to the public on tomorrow and Friday as we prepare for the sale.  

 

The Down Cellar Poets will be meeting on Monday, May 7th, at 7 p.m.

 

The Evening Book Club will be meeting next Wednesday, May 9th, at 7 p.m.

 

You may have noticed a stuffed toy cat as you have entered into the library and/or on the library’s Face Book page.  This is Li’l Bub.  An article on him is included in this edition of The Sun.

 


 

“Lil Bub"

You may have seen pictures of Lil Bub, the Chichester Library mascot that arrived with our new Library Directory, on our FaceBook page and wondered if there were a backstory about this cat.  It turns out there is so much more to Lil Bub than just being a toy or even a mascot.  When first asked, Caroline the Librarian started to tell how Lil Bub was a special needs cat and began to list all of the challenges this little feline has.  Since I asked the question because I knew nothing of the background, I also did not know until then that Lil Bub is an actual, living cat, who has become an internet sensation.  There is even a book out titled Lil Bub.  (The library has a copy of this book).

 

Because her owner has been able to provide her with the very special care she has needed, Lil Bub’s life is better than anyone could ever imagine.  They have also turned her life story and how her challenges have been met into support of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and inspiring others to follow that lead.
