Make Valentine’s Day plans for you and the kids! The Library is
hosting a movie night for the kids, which allows the adults to go
out for dinner or just enjoy some quiet time together. There will
be two movies offered, and the evening starts at 6 p.m., finishing
up at 8:30 p.m. Dumbo is being shown for the younger kids or others
who might want to see it. The Boxtrolls is a 2014 animated
fantasy-comedy film based on the novel Here Be Monsters! by Alan
Snow. It would be helpful to the Library for you to
register the kids, just for planning purposes.
Also, mark your calendars now for the afternoon of March 8th when
the Library is bringing New Hampshire’s own Rebecca Rule to the
Grange for her program, “Moved and Seconded: Town Meeting in New
Hampshire.” Her humor will entertain us, but we will simultaneously
be learning stories of the rituals, traditions and history of town
meeting. Whether you are a newer resident to Chichester or New
England, or you are a life-long resident, you will enjoy being
regaled by this well-known storyteller.

Planning For The Future Of The Chichester Town Library
As many residents know, Chichester has just participated in a Plan
New Hampshire project which focuses on sustainable communities.
A quick picture, literally, of what “Library Corner” would look like
incorporates green space in the front of the library and moves
parking to the rear of the building. This would provide for more
parking, as well as a more scenic view of the library and of
Because of a recent bequest of a long-time Chichester resident, the
Chichester Town Library is now in the position of being able to
start addressing some current construction/maintenance issues, which
then fold right into working towards the vision presented in the
Chichester Charrette for Main Street. However, to do that, a team
of people with various skills needs to be assembled. Some of the
main skills needed are project management, civil engineering,
construction and landscape design. More skills will be identified
once this team is assembled.
If you have the type of skill(s) needed to move this
project forward, from design to implementation, you are requested to
contact the Library Trustees, i.e., Carol Hendee, Lucille Noel or
Carolee Davison. You can reach them by e-mailing the Library at
[email protected] or calling 798-5613.
