Town Library News
We’re in the middle of National Library Week. Hopefully, many
of you have already visited the Library this week and, perhaps, some
of you have signed up for a new Library card. Every person
coming into the Library to look around can enter the raffle for a
gift certificate from Dominick’s Pizza, Pasta and Things to be
awarded at the end of the week. (Raffle entries for this group
are limited to one per person per day.) An additional raffle
ticket will be given to those who get a Library card while visiting.
The receipt of a raffle ticket will also be extended to those who
“Like” us on FaceBook during the week.
Visitors should take note of the display devoted to the history of
Chichester, to the right as you enter the foyer. The
Historical Society has set up the current exhibit, toys from
yesteryear, and will be changing it out on a monthly basis.
There will always be something interesting to look at, including tax
inventory books dating back to the 1800’s and unusual Town
positions. These exhibits will provide us with a hint of what
is available through our Historical Society.
The regularly scheduled story and crafts
time for preschoolers, kindergarteners and their parent/caregiver
will be tomorrow at 10:30 a.m.
Saturday, April 16th, is the first used book sale of the season,
from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. There are a lot of newer books available,
so don’t miss out on the opportunity! Since this month also
celebrates William Shakespeare, as well as including National
Library Week, he will be prominently featured in this sale, as well
as other celebrated authors and books.
Monday, April 18th, will be a meeting of
the Lovers of the Chichester Library at 7 p.m.
Farming Lecture - Live Free And Farm
April’s “Backyard Farming” lecture features Professor John
Carroll’s new book, ending with book signing and available copies of
Pastures of Plenty and Live Free and Farm. Event is
scheduled for April 20, 2016, 7pm, Town Library. PLEASE RSVP;
if we receive more than 25 RSVPs, we will be moving the lecture from
Chichester Town Library to Chichester Grange Hall.
Professor Carroll will focus on his most recent book, Live Free and
Farm: Food and Independence in the Granite State. The theme is
local food and farming, including value-added food processing and,
as well, food preparation, all in the context of the energy (oil),
climate change, and economic pressures driving our people, our towns
and cities, today. All will be tied into current events as
they are unfolding in late April.
The prolific author has written more than a dozen books including a
sustainable and ecological farming trilogy: The Wisdom of
Small Farms and Local Food: Aldo Leopold’s Land Ethic and
Sustainable Agriculture (UNH Agricultural Experiment Station
Publication #2260); Pastures of Plenty: The Future of Food,
Agriculture and Environmental Conservation in New England (UNH
Agricultural Experiment Station Publication #2340); and The Real
Dirt: Toward Food Sufficiency and Farm Sustainability in New
England, published in Spring, 2010.
“Sustainable agricultural practices in New
England concern us all, from farmers to backyard gardeners to food
consumers,” says Dr. John E. Carroll. “Agriculture in New
England is dying. Quite true. Agriculture in New England
is being born. Equally true. Two different

guided numerous graduate degree students (Masters and Ph.D) in
