THE LIBRARY LOWDOWN
A Publication of the Chester County Library
I cannot live without books. Thomas Jefferson
CELEBRATE MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. DAY ON MONDAY, JANUARY 21ST!
WE ARE STILL FINE FREE FOR JANUARY
Our library will be Fine Free for the month of 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.
THE DOORS ARE OPEN! OUR NEW CARPET IS IN!
Come see for yourself! We have beautiful new carpet and wood laminate. Thanks to all the people who made this possible and a SPECIAL THANKS to all our patrons for their patience and understanding during the month of December. We missed you!
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM YOUR FRIENDLY LOCAL LIBRARY?
As the library starts the new year, 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! Come join us!
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.
