Chichester 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.



Backyard 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 agricultures.”


John E. Carroll, in four decades at UNH, has taught and done research on national and international environmental policy, diplomacy, ethics, and values as they pertain to sustainable agriculture and food systems.  A UNH professor since 1974, he has directed and taught in the university’s undergraduate natural resources and environmental degree programs for many years, and has guided numerous graduate degree students (Masters and Ph.D) in natural resources and environmental research.  Carroll holds a Ph.D in Resource Development from Michigan State University and lives in Durham, New Hampshire.
