Chichester Town Library News
Schools are starting, and the Library remains a great resource for
students and teachers. In fact, teachers have been finding
lots of books to help them connect with their students and provide
them with even more information.
Knitting Circle will continue to meet on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m.
Monday, September 3rd, is Labor Day and the library will be closed.
Thursday, September 6th at 7 p.m., the library with the help of the
Humanities Council to Go program is sponsoring “The Vietnam War:
Diverse Perspectives.” It 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. This video, and other similar ones, have
often been used as an introduction to Ken Burns’ documentary on the
war. A lot of lessons were learned in response to this war and
to the reactions of the general populous, since there was no other
situation so polarizing at the time. This program 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. Because of the anticipated interest,
the program will be held at the Grange/Town Hall.
themes for the September 8th Down Under Used Book Sale have been

enjoy a backyard barbeque, cooking and canning, as well as
back-to-school. August’s sale saw quite an interest in the
collectibles and vintage books; therefore, the one-half price sale
on these treasures is being extended for September.
Farmers’ Market held in conjunction with this sale is always
popular. We continue to add vendors, but we hope to have even
more before the sale. Vendors are asked to contact the library
to register. Space is limited to 10X10 feet. There is no
