Chichester Public Library News


Another book club starts at the library tonight!  People who are interested can come and pick up their book, The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout, at 7 p.m. for the next month.  Plans are that this group will meet on the third Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m.  This adds an option to those who want to be in a book club, but cannot make the noon book club that meets on the first Thursday of the month.  This literary pick for the month is about adult brothers from a small town in Maine and the complex relationships among siblings.


The original, 1931 version of Frankenstein will be shown at the library on Friday, Oct. 21st at 3 p.m.  This should be a wonderfully ghoulish good time for those who attend. 


The Down Cellar Writers will be meeting on Monday, October 24th, at 7 p.m.


Thanks to all who came to the book sale on Saturday.  You might have noticed a plaque on the wall at the bottom of the stairs, as you entered the “down under” space.  It reflects the Mission Statement of the Down Under Book Store which is, as follows:


The Chichester Town Library Down Under Book Store and its volunteers are dedicated to bringing the joy of reading, sharing and owning books to the residents of Chichester and its surrounding communities, while simultaneously promoting the activities and services of the Library.

Letter To The Editor


Chichester and Pembroke have the option of voting for a quality candidate for state rep, Darren Tapp. I am certain he will work for what’s best for New Hampshire.


I deliver time sensitive medical supplies, so you can imagine how critical my car is for my job. Years ago, I had a boot on my car that was going to prevent me from working the next day. I reached out to my friends to help with the situation. When Darren found out about this situation he immediately gave me the remaining amount I needed to remove the boot from my car. Darren was not carrying enough cash or a checkbook to make his gift, so he gave me bitcoin.


I’m aware that many people may not understand bitcoin. The thing is, Darren’s background in mathematics gives him the ability to actually understand bitcoin. This is a rare trait that voters should not discount. Anyone should want a state rep with specialized knowledge and how it applies to technology.


Darren later went to the statehouse to argue for a bill that would have allowed the state of New Hampshire to accept bitcoin. If this bill passed it would have helped people who were in my situation. Darren has not only been an advocate for me personally, but also in the statehouse. I would encourage people to vote for Darren Tapp so he can be an advocate for you, too.
