ALSO NEW AND EXCITING
We have recently purchased some series of interactive books for children. Each book has a website and code to go to and the books literally come alive on the computer screen. The series includes Exploring Ecosystems; Inside the NFL; and Mighty Military Machines.
Books make great gifts. They have the whole world inside them. - Neil Gaiman
Recently, the Hatchie River Regional Library released the circulation report for the 2016-17 fiscal year. Our little library checked out over 35,000 books (and about 20,000 other library materials)! To those who feel that books will soon be a thing of the past due to electronic devices, we at the Chester County Library beg to differ. We are certainly a community of readers.
