Chichester Town Library News

 

Thanks to all who came to the Down Cellar Used Book Sale.  Sales continue to help fund programs and needs at the library that are not covered by the Town Budget.

 

You may wonder how the Lovers of the Chichester Library handle the book donations.  When they are received, they are sorted.  Some are in pretty bad shape, e.g. moldy with mildew.  Those have to be discarded.  Some pique our interest to check for a larger value than what we would get at the book sale, and we explore eBay for price comparisons. If these books are worth the money, we actually post them on eBay and have often received a good price. The others are put into their categories for the sale, with triplicates being donated to those with a good use for books, such as nursing homes. Your donations of books are appreciated by so many, and we thank you for them.

 

The school year is winding down, and the library is looking forward to a great summer.  As we have in the past, the library will be participating in the Summer Reading Program, “Libraries Rock!”  Although the planning is ongoing, the offerings to our kids will keep them engaged in how much the library, its books and activities have to offer.  Stay tuned for further details.  

 

The “Little Book Houses” are repaired and open at both Carpenter Park and the Town Hall parking lots.  People have already dropped by to enjoy their offerings.

 

The Knitting Circle will be meeting Wednesday, at 3:30 p.m. 

 

The Preschool Story and Craft Hour will meet Thursday, June 7th.  The following week, June 14th, is the last day of this school year for the Preschool Story and Crafts Hour.  A therapy dog will be coming, so don’t lose this opportunity to see a trained, working dog up close.  We’re sure all will enjoy the program.

 

Monday, June 11th, the Library Trustees are scheduled to meet at 4 p.m.  This is an open meeting and patrons are welcome to attend to share ideas and/or concerns.

 

The Evening Book Club will be meeting on Wednesday evening, the 13th, at 7 p.m.

 

The Teen Advisory Group is working on hosting a free breakfast for seniors on Saturday, June 16th at 9 a.m.  It was a success last year and the same is expected this year.  There is a sign-up sheet at the circulation desk.  It’s always good to see the teens active and combining fun with service.  Kudos to them!
