Chichester Town Library News


The summer has gone by so quickly!  But, the Library continues to be busy and offer a variety of activities to the residents of Chichester and neighboring towns.


The Library will be closed on Saturday, the 20th, because we will be present for Old Home Day.  Lisa, our inimitable librarian, will be showing the documentary, “Pieces of the Past,” a living history production by the Teen Advisory Group.  (See separate article for additional information, please.)  There will also be other treats, so make sure you check us out!


The Down Cellar Writers are scheduled to meet on Monday, August 22nd, at 7 p.m.


The Summer Reading Program is wrapping up, so make sure all of the reading hours are registered.  The last event is scheduled for Friday, August 26th, 7 p.m., at the Historical Society, where there will be games and activities from a by-gone era, a scavenger hunt and an ice cream social.  Raffle prizes will also be presented.


Don’t forget the Down Under Book Sale on Saturday, August 27th, from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.  This will also incorporate a Farmers’ Market, cosponsored by the Grange and the Library from 8 a.m. to noon, rain or shine, in the Grange parking lot.



“Pieces Of The Past”

A Living History Documentary


There may not be a red carpet, but there probably should be, for the premier of “Pieces of the Past” at the Chichester Old Home Day (August 20th) celebration at the pavilion in Carpenter Park.   The Teen Advisory Group of the Chichester Library has spent numerous hours and many months producing this documentary, including gathering the stories of a number of Chichester residents who can teach us a thing or two about the history of Chichester and, in fact, about life itself. 


The Chichester residents who are featured include: Nancy Agular, Eleanor Corlise, Carolee Davison, Daisy Day, Al and Priscilla Davidson, Barbara Frangione, Mardy Friary, Ruth Hammon, Dick Pratt, John and Kay Snow and Bill Zarakota.


The primary film producers are Sarah Miner, Emily Allen, Hanna Testerman and Mikayla Cadorette, members of the Teen Advisory Group.  Also contributing were Luke Jameson and Katy Jo Cummings.   The group learned all of the aspects of the endeavor, including how to use the camera that was purchased for their use, how to conduct the interviews, and even how to use that “cutting room,” where they condensed the production from over 2 ½ hours of interviews into the final ½ half movie.


We know that some of these talented and dedicated film producers will be present at the premiere to share their personal experiences, as well as to discuss the film.  In addition, it is our understanding that there will be a limited number of “swag bags” to be handed out that include a sweet treat.


There is one item needed to help with this event: a stand-alone screen.  This will aid in better viewing by all.  Please call Lisa at 798-5613, if you can help out in this regard. 



Chichester Old Home Day 2016

A Family Affair


Chichester’s Old Home Day will be held at Carpenter Park on Saturday, August 20. Events begin at 9 a.m. with a Run/Walk with Stephanie Berkeley of the Chichester Running Club or, if you prefer more gentle exercise, a walk along the Carpenter Park Wood’s Trail led by Zach Boyajian of the Chichester Conservation Commission.


Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.  there will be Touch a Truck, Children’s Activities, the Live and Let Live Farm “Animal Meet and Greet, and information booths by Town Organizations and Committees to explore and enjoy.


Between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. the Chichester Library will present their Pieces of the Past Documentary.


Following an invocation by Pastor Travis Allen of the Chichester United Methodist Church, Beanhole Beans prepared by the Marden Family and Roast Pig done by Chris Weir will be served at noon.


Leave the park in the middle of the afternoon to head home for a nap or a swim, but be sure to return at 5:00 p.m. for your family picnic (no grills) and then for a Bonfire  at 6 p.m.  The Lovers of the Chichester  Library (LOCL) and the Chichester Grange will provide the makings for S’mores.


Please come and participate in Chichester’s Old Home Day with your family and your neighbors.
