THE LIBRARY LOWDOWN

I cannot live without books. Thomas Jefferson
HOW ABOUT A SPRING BOOK SALE?
When our storage closet overflows, a book sale needs to happen. Our current book sale is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and began on Monday, April 9. We continue to accept donations, so keep the books coming. We really do appreciate the support that our community gives us in this regard. As always, hardback books are 50 cents; paperbacks are 25 cents; or fill up a bag of books for $3.00. DVDs/videos/audio books are $1.00 and not included in the bag sale.

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.

In April, when raining is sunlight,
When dawn is a coarse young crow,
As the willows bend to feather,
The Great Farm springs to grow.
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.
