Chichester Town Library News


The holidays are within reach.  It is a time of year we are thankful for our blessings and mindful of those who may not have as much.  The Library is always a place where donations to the food pantry can be made.  Hopefully, the less fortunate will be remembered.


Also helping with the sweetness of the season is the December raffle—an apple pie.  Don’t forget to get your tickets!  Word has it this is one pie not to be missed!


And, if you need to boost your holiday spirit or find a place to express it, the Library will be hosting a holiday sing-a-long on Saturday, December 21st from 6-8 p.m. at the Library.  Rumor has it that Santa Claus plans to join the festivities!  Cookies, hot chocolate, coffee and tea should add to the enjoyment of the evening!  Mark it on your calendars now, before it gets lost in the rush of the season. 


This is also the time of year when days are the shortest and nights are the longest.  It is often cold outside and, if it’s too cold to play outside, what kind of activities can we enjoy indoors?  The obvious offering of the Library is books to read or to listen to.  Either provide hours of entertainment as we curl up by the fire or stove.  


There are also puzzles and games available in the Down Under Section of the Library where they can be purchased, along with used books, when the Library is open.


In addition, the Library is the meeting place for a number of groups, including the Crafts Group, Writers Groups, Photographers Group and the Storytelling and Crafts Group for our youngest.  The LOCL (Lovers of the Chichester Library) meeting for Dec. will be Dec. 16th--a week earlier than usual.  Meetings of these groups are listed in the calendar on the website and in media columns, such as this.  


Up-to-date information and/or reminders often appear on the Library Face Book page.  Please “like” us on Face Book and encourage your friends to do so, too. 




Robert (Bob) L. Burklund, Sr.


Robert L. Burklund Sr. 80, of Northwood Rd Strafford passed away peacefully at his home Thursday Nov. 28,2013.


Bob is survived by his loving wife Joan. They were  married 57 years.  He leaves behind a daughter Debbie Burklund Marden of Chichester, and two sons Robert L. Burklund Jr, of Northwood and Scott G. Burklund of Durham, two sisters, Marlene Paige of Dover, and Carla Downing of Boscawen. He was predeceased by a daughter Robin Burklund Drown of Northwood.


Bob had many loving grandchildren: Linwood Marden Jr., Jessica Weeks, Lt. Nathan Marden, Lauren Dow, Tania  Chamberlain, Ryan Drown, Gregg Burklund, Rachael Burklund,and Rebecca Burklund. Nine great grandchildren. Bob was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend to all. 


Bob graduated from Coe-Brown Academy in Northwood, and was a volunteer firefighter in Northwood for many years.    Bob was very handy and always had a project he was working on. Whether it was his own or helping someone else he could fix almost anything. Bob was proud to serve his country in the U.S. Air Force.  He worked at the University of New Hampshire for 23 and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for 15 years.  He received many awards and certificates. After retiring from the Shipyard, he drove buses part time for Northwood Transportation.   


Bob was honorary past master of Morrison Lodge #90 and received the General John Sullivan Award for his notorious service. Bob spent the past few winters in Florida surrounded by many great friends. In his spare time he enjoyed camping, playing cards, dancing, and flying his R/C plane, but most importantly being with his family and friends.  He will be sorely missed by his faithful dog Shadow.


A special thank you to the Seacoast Cancer Center for their loving care and support, and thank you to the Purdy Funeral Service for all of the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to Seacoast Cancer Center, in Dover or Massonic Lodge#90 in Northwood in memory of Bob.
