Monday's are Senior Cafe Day at Chesley Memorial Library all fall!
Meet a friend, make a friend! The Chesley Memorial Library Senior Café meets every Monday from 1:00-2:30 p.m. Are you looking for a chance to get out and make new friends? Would you like to enjoy some home baked goodies? Local resident Boni Hibbard is still bringing her ukulele and leading sing-alongs (after we finish refreshments!) and is more than happy to take special requests. Boni will be leaving for Florida next month so make sure to join us before she says goodbye.
What is a Senior Cafe? A place to gather and socialize for older folks from Northwood and surrounding towns. (We're handicap accessible so don't let that stop you from joining us.)
The heat is on so it’s a perfect place to keep warm while meeting up with friends!. Come share stories, pass time with old friends and meet new ones. There is no specific program planned for each week; we might talk about books, make decorations for the library, listen to local musicians, play Trivial Pursuit, or we might just visit and enjoy each others company. Light refreshments will be served.
Caretakers are welcome to stay with seniors for the café but can also enjoy some time away on their own if appropriate. Please call the library at 942-5472 if you would like more information.
Teens in grades 9-12 are invited to vote for the Flume Award, the NH Teen Readers' Choice Award. Vote for your favorite from ten selected titles downstairs in the teen room. Voting takes place through October 22nd.

Looking for a riveting and educational program on coyotes? Join us at the Chesley Memorial Library on Tuesday, October 20, at 7:00 p.m. for Chris Schadler’s coyote presentation! Chris is a Project Coyote representative for New Hampshire and Vermont. She is also a science advisor to the North East Wolf Coalition which promotes continued protection of wolves east of the Mississippi, holds a Masters in Conservation Biology, and taught Conservation Issues and Wolf Ecology at the University of New Hampshire. Wolf recovery was the focus of her early work, but Chris shifted her attention to the eastern coyote when she moved to New England. She chose a farm with known coyote problems to raise sheep and train her border collies. Using sound livestock management and common sense, she has avoided any predation for nearly two decades. A peaceful co-existence between coyote and livestock has grown an attentive audience for humane management.
