Monday's are Senior Cafe Day at Chesley Memorial Library
The Senior Café continues on Mondays through the fall, 1:00-2:30 p.m. at the Chesley Memorial Library.
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 central air is on so it’s a perfect place to cool down while meeting up with friends! "We want it to be a good old fashioned social hour". 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, 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.
Afternoons or evenings…the choice is yours!
Afternoon Book Discussion
The Afternoon Book Discussion will meet at the Chesley Memorial Library - October 1 at 2 p.m. to discuss "And the mountains echoed" by Khaled Hosseini.
An unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else.
Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.
Evening Book Discussion
The Evening Book Discussion will meet on the Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 7:00 p.m. to discuss our favorite books.
Library Trustee Meeting
The Chesley Memorial Library Board of Trustees will meet - Sept. 19 at 10:15 a.m.and October 17 at 10:15 a.m.

Cake Decorating Class
Registration is required. (A minimum of 5 participants required)
Classes went great! Everyone had a great time and learned alot. Watch this site for future class announcements.
Want to learn how to decorate cake borders, frost flowers, and more? We had to cancel the second cake decorating class this summer because we did not have enough participants. If you were interested in learning basic cake decorating techniques but just did not have the time during the busy summer season, please let us know…we can schedule another session during the fall or winter. The class is geared towards adults but teens are welcome. There is no cost for the class but you must register.
