Chichester Public Library News


The calendar sheds its pages like the trees shed their leaves.  Along the way, there is much to see and do, enjoying all that each day has to offer, especially at the library.  Tomorrow, the young ones in pre-school and kindergarten can enjoy the Story and Craft Hour starting at 10:30 a.m. 


Saturday is a busy day in the lives of those who enjoy the activities of the library.  The Down Under Book Sale will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the themes being Halloween, mysteries and horror.  There should be something for everyone at this sale, as there is at all of them. 


Later in the day, at 7 p.m., the Teen Advisory Group will be presenting their documentary, “Pieces of the Past,” at the Grange, 54 Main Street.  Interviews of long-time residents were conducted and have now been recorded and edited to a viewer-friendly version.  Our hats are off to the efforts of these teens, who include: Sarah Miner, Emily Allen, Hanna Testerman and Mikayla Cadorette, members of the Teen Advisory Group.  Also contributing were Luke Jameson and Katy Jo Cummings.   


Lovers of the Chichester Library will be meeting on Monday, October 17th at 7 p.m.


And, with a quick look ahead, our Halloween specialist, Lisa the Magical Librarian, will be showing the original, 1931 version of Frankenstein on Oct. 21st at 3 p.m.  This is a Friday afternoon when school is closed for parent-teacher conferences.  What a great way to learn what started current fright movies and to see the differences.

Contact Lucille Noel at 798-5709 for information concerning the program.



Letter To The Editor


As a thirty-year resident of Chichester and NH native, I want to ask Chichester and Pembroke voters to be aware that State Representative candidates Brian Seaworth and Darren Tapp are members of the Free State Project. This organization was founded in 2001 to encourage 20,000 people to move to NH and run for office to further their extreme anti-government agenda.


Neither Seaworth nor Tapp are forthcoming about being Free Staters. You won’t find it mentioned on their websites or social media pages. They don’t admit that they came to NH (in 2006 and 2009) as part of a political migration with the aim of dismantling our laws and government.


Seaworth and Tapp are running as Republicans to represent Chichester and Pembroke at the State House.  They are uncompromising idealists who are more interested in their own agenda than in what is best for our towns.


Seaworth’s anti-government beliefs have led to his sponsorship of a bill to remove the Governor’s authority to declare a state of emergency. Tapp doesn’t have a voting record yet, but has been pushing for adoption of Bitcoin as legal tender and once told me he didn’t see a need for the NHDOT or local fire departments. 


Free Staters like Seaworth and Tapp obstruct problem-solving at the State House because they want to eliminate the role of government in our society. We need Representatives in the State House who are willing to work across the aisle to do what’s best for our towns and our state.
