THE LIBRARY LOWDOWN
A Publication of the Chester County Library
I cannot live without books. Thomas Jefferson
Since summer is over, we are able to schedule computer classes again.
On Thursday, October 18, at 5:00 PM, Holly Roeder will instruct a class on how to make Christmas cards using online resources. Please call or stop by to sign up for this class as space is limited.
All classes are provided by a technology training grant from the Tennessee State Library and Archives.
On Saturday, October 20, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, the library will host a book signing for former Chester County resident, Sally Rowlett Kilpatrick. Sally has recently published her fifth book, Oh My Stars, and she will have copies to purchase. Sally is the daughter of Jim and Jane Rowlett and is a 1993 graduate of CCHS.
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM YOUR FRIENDLY LOCAL LIBRARY?
Since our wild and crazy summer is about over, the library is turning 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 eight more classes with our technology training grant and we are open to suggestions for future classes.
State funds have become available through the Hatchie River Regional Library so be sure and tell us what you want to see on our shelves. 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
Storytime is on Tuesdays at 10:00 AM with our director, Nancy Canada, reading to children and parents alike. All ages are welcome. Come on out and hear a great story well read.
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.
WHAT ARE THE BOOK CLUBS READING?
