LIBRARY CARD SIGN UP MONTH
A library card is the coolest card – September is Library Card Sign-up Month.
Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Chesley Memorial Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most import school supply of all – a free library card.
Resources at the Chesley Memorial Library are available to anyone with a library card. The Chesley Memorial Library offers programs for students of all ages. For preschool age children we support early literacy with the 100 Book Club and weekly story times to encourage school readiness. For older children and teens we support literacy with book clubs and offer programs to foster creative thinking. There’s really something for everyone and it’s all free with a library card.
The Chesley Memorial Library will host an Open House on Saturday, September 19, from 10:00-1:00 p.m. so visit the library to get your new library card…and help us win the Granite State Library Card Challenge for adding the most new library cards in the month of September!
September is also the month to replace lost library cards free of charge so make sure to visit if you need a replacement card. Visit the library web site at www.chesleylib.com for more information about our library.
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.
