All of our classes are offered through a Technology Training Grant from the Tennessee State Library and Archives.
Our classes are offered on a monthly basis and are free to the public. So far, we have held classes on Microsoft Word, Excel, Facebook and Google Docs. We plan to offer a class on resume writing and how to negotiate the PhotoShop program. We also plan to revisit basic programs like Microsoft Word during the course of the grant term. Let us know what you would like to learn. Remember, these are YOUR tax dollars at work and we are happy to hear from our community's residents. Call us at 989-4673 with your suggestions.

                                                            Winter Poem 

                                                            once a snowflake fell
                                                            on my brow and i loved
                                                            it so much and i kissed
                                                            it and it was happy and called its cousins
                                                            and brothers and a web
                                                            of snow engulfed me then
                                                            i reached to love them all
                                                            and i squeezed them and they became
                                                            a spring rain and i stood perfectly
                                                            still and was a flower 

                                                                                                Nikki Giovanni


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.
