Lake. You don’t have to live on the lake to join. Annual dues are

Memorial Library Goes Green
Summer is in full swing at the
Chesley Memorial Library (despite the icky weather!) and our Summer
Reading Programs (we have 3!) are rolling along. This year we
have split the programs into three age groups: children, teens &
tweens, and adults. Children going into Kindergarten up
through 5th grade are invited to participate in the Summer Reading
Program, which features the theme Going Green At Your Library!
The Summer Reading Club, for teens and tweens in grades 6 and up,
features the theme Get Your Green On! Adults are encouraged to
participate in our newest program- Read, Return, Repeat.
All of our themes this year focus on all things “Green” and the
environment. We are using less paper in our materials,
learning about the environment, and all of our activities are
featuring reused or recycled materials! Registration began for
all three programs on Wednesday, July 1, and already we have a
number of participants! If you haven’t registered though, you
still have time! Just stop by the library and ask about Summer
For complete details regarding these programs please
