Chichester Town Library News

 

The Summer Reading Program has concluded, but to say that “Libraries Rock” would be an understatement from the level of participation throughout the program.  Messy art, music with the “Songs of Emigration” and the Ukeladies, turtles, theater and movies were all well-attended.  These programs were in addition to the 28 participants who had actually signed up to read throughout the summer and subsequently receive prizes for their efforts.  For those who didn’t attend the finale, bring your completed contracts to the library and receive your prizes!  Thanks to all who came and thanks to all who helped.

 

There is a new community-based program which has started at the library on Wednesday at 7 p.m. and is expected to continue through the summer. Those interested in yoga are invited to try this group of physical, mental and spiritual practices/disciplines.  Sign-up is required, and participants should wear loose-fitting clothing and bring their own yoga mat.  

 

Lovers of the Chichester Library will be meeting on Monday, August 20th at 7 p.m.

 

Used book sales continue to be popular, not only with the “regulars,” but also with newcomers.  Our thanks to all.  Don’t forget that the September 8th sale is reserved for a Farmers’ Market.  Vendors should contact the library to register.  Produce, homemade crafts, baked goods, syrup, candies, etc., are all things that sell well at this event.

 

Old Home Day is this weekend.  The library will have books available at the site and, in conjunction with the Grange, will be providing the makings for s’mores for the kids.

 

Two upcoming programs to mark on calendars include the ever-popular Dudley Laufman who will play for and lead attendees in contra dancing on Friday, August 24th at 7 p.m. at the Grange/Town Hall.  This program is sponsored by the library and the Humanities Council to Go program.  

 

The second program is also sponsored with the help of the Humanities Council to Go program and is entitled “The Vietnam War: Diverse Perspectives.”  This is the first of two programs sponsored by Humanities To Go and includes a 28-minute video with stories from a journalist, an anti-war activist, an author and combat soldier, a South Vietnamese refugee, an ARVN officer and several US Marines.  It will be facilitated by Suzanne Brown, who has worked with veterans and the staff of veterans’ hospitals for several years.  Ms. Brown has recently retired from Dartmouth College after teaching there for over thirty-five years.  The program will be held at the library on Thursday, September 6th at 7 p.m.
