AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR
The Chesley Memorial Library proudly joins the ranks of facilities equipped with an Automated External Defibrillator thanks to the Bean Hole Bash Committee! Greg Bane (President) and Mike Smith (Vice President) started working with Bean Hole Bash Committee members last September to purchase a defibrillator for the library. They were able to purchase the defibrillator at a reduced price through the AED contract provided by the New Hampshire Bureau of Emergency Medical Services in cooperation with the Department of Administration Services. The library staff and trustees attended a training session provided by the Bureau of Medical Services and the Northwood Fire Department.
Lego Clubs will continue through the winter
Wednesday's 12 - 6 pm
LEGOs, Magformers, and Brainflakes at your library!
The LEGOs, Magformers, and Brainflakes are out every Wednesday from 12 - 6 pm for you and your family to enjoy. Let your imagination be your guide! LEGO creations will be on display until the next session so bring everyone back to see your masterpieces.
Make sure to check out the NINJAGO LEGO display downstairs on your way in to the youth room! Local resident Schuyler Savage displays his LEGO creations in the library to build enthusiasm for the LEGO club.
Spend family time at the library. Get involved.
You and your children can learn a lot of things together! Like how to make a magnetic Ferris Wheel with our new Magformers.
Do you want to learn how to knit or crochet? Do you need help with knitting or crocheting projects? Local artisan Norma Heroux is willing to provide individual lessons at the Chesley Memorial Library at your convenience. If you are interested, please leave your name and phone number at the library circulation desk. We will pass your information on to Norma and she will contact you to arrange your lesson.
There is no fee required for this wonderful service.

Monday's are Senior Cafe Day at Chesley Memorial Library all year long!
The Senior Café meets on Mondays 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? Join us at the library! We might have a special program like learning how to make butter or we might just visit and enjoy each other’s company. When do you become a senior? You tell us!
According to an article written by Emily Brandon for U.S. News: “There is no clearly defined age when an American becomes a senior citizen. Some people might consider themselves seniors when they are invited to join AARP, qualify for Medicare, or officially retire from the workplace. Some 96 percent of current 50-year-olds don’t consider themselves senior citizens and only slightly over half (56 percent) of 64-year-olds say the term senior citizen applies to them.” Sounds like a good topic for discussion at one of our meetings!
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.)
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.
