THE LIBRARY LOWDOWN
A Publication of the Chester County Library
I cannot live without books. Thomas Jefferson
FINE FREE FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON
Our library will be Fine Free for the months of November, December, and January. Bring in any materials, no matter how overdue, and we will forgive the fine. If you have fines on your card, come in and we will remove them. Happy Holidays from your friendly local library!
NEW CARPET IS IN OUR FUTURE
Our building will be, surprisingly, twenty years old in March and, in that time, many feet have crossed our floor. We plan to put new carpet down in December so we will be closed for, hopefully, only two weeks, beginning Monday, December 3. All of the shelves will have to be taken down and the books packed up so this will be a major undertaking. We are replacing the carpet in the main area of the building and in the conference room.
We also plan to install hardwood laminate at the door and around the circulation desk since this is the highest traffic area. We apologize for any inconvenience that this will cause. December is our slowest month - with all the festivities, people do not have much time to read. We hope to be back up and running at least by the time that school is out for the holidays.
Our library family is proud to recognize Major Mark Jordan, serving as a helicopter pilot for the Tennessee Army National Guard, husband of Paige and father of Pierce, Cole, Rex, and Jovie.
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM YOUR FRIENDLY LOCAL LIBRARY?
As the library looks ahead to 2019, we turn to thoughts of scheduling computer classes and purchasing new material with funds available through the Hatchie River Regional Library.
What do you want?
We will be providing several more classes with our technology training grant and we are open to suggestions for future classes.
We always try to purchase new books from popular authors, but we are very happy to take suggestions. Remember that this is your library and we do want to provide our public with great selections.
STORYTIME WITH MISS NANCY
All ages are welcome as every Tuesday at 10:00 AM, Miss Nancy reads and performs finger puppet plays
for your enjoyment. There is coloring, too!
CAN'T FIND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR?
We might be able to borrow what you want from another library. Ask about this at the circulation desk.
