A Week at the Library of The Chathams Monday, November 27 – Sunday, December 3, 2017

As nights get darker, we invite you to two movie nights this week. Families with children will enjoy an animated feature, Leap!  Teenagers can have a good time together while watching Grease and eating pizza.  In December we are entering the holiday mode.  Friends of the Library will offer holiday gift books at their annual one-day sale, and the Concord Singers will present a concert of classic holiday favorites on Saturday.
