Preschool Story and Craft
Hour is one of the library’s programs encouraging our youngest
population to become acquainted with, and feel comfortable in, the
library; to know the Library Director and staff; and, of course, to
develop a life-long love for books and reading. Caroline, the
Director, and Sara Wright, one of our newer staff members, are
directly involved with this program, with the volunteer help of
Barbara Pappas. They will meet tomorrow, September 27th, at
The Down Cellar Poets’
Workshop is scheduled for Monday, October 1st, at 7 p.m.
On Friday, October 5th,
at 7 p.m. at the Grange, a program will be presented by New
Hampshire Audubon entitled “Wings of the Night: Owls and Bats.”
While both of these nocturnal animals rely heavily on their sense of
hearing to survive, each has its own way of catching prey. This is a
great way to learn about them, up close and personal, since there
will be a live owl at the presentation.
The end of September
already? That means there is a Down Cellar Used Book Sale
right around the corner. The themes include Halloween and
harvest time. In addition, we’ll be building on the successes
of the past two sales with this sale. On October 6th, from 8
a.m.-1 p.m., we will continue with the half-price sale of
collectible and vintage books (unless otherwise noted), as we have
with the past two sales. In addition to the books, this sale
will include a Vintage and Collectible Sale of goods, much like the
format for the Farmers’ Market of September. Vendors wishing
to sell vintage and/or collectible items will be allotted a 10’x10’
space, in which they can set up a pop-up tent and table/display.
There will be a $5 fee to vendors. With limited space, the
library needs interested vendors to contact the library either by
calling 603-798-5613, e-mailing the Library Director at
stopping by in person. There is no rain date.
There is only one more
Down Under Used Book Sale scheduled for the calendar year, and that
is November 3rd. Although the Used Book Section is open to the
public when the library is open (excluding when programs are being
held or right before a book sale), the scheduled sales offer the
assistance of Lovers of the Chichester Library to help customers
find books and check them out. We are always appreciative of
the generous participants of the sales, as well as those who donate

free books available to the public in different spots around Town
and elsewhere, in addition to the Little Book Houses. The
library is partnering with various community sites to offer some of
the “extra” books we have for their customers’ enjoyment.
