This Weekend: Stop by the Friends of the Library Book Sale

The Friends of The Library of The Chathams work year round to support the library, but this weekend they will be holding one of their biggest annual events: The Friends’ Annual Book Sale.
The sale features thousands of books for all ages, DVDs, CDs, and vinyl records, and will open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 14. Early birds will be admitted for a $25 fee at 7:30 a.m.
The sale will continue on Sunday, March 15 from 1 to 4 p.m., and throughout the following week.
The sale is a huge undertaking, and the amount of work put into it cannot be understated: For months volunteers in the Friends organization have gathered, organized, and sorted books. They’ve written advertisements for the book sale, held organizational meetings, and have worked together with the library, community groups, and teen volunteers to get everything ready for this weekend.

All proceeds from the sale benefit the library—Friends’ donations are regularly used for children’s 
programming, for adding materials to the library’s collections, and for a number of other resources like museum passes or, more recently, a subscription to the educational resource
The book sale features a room filled with children’s and young adult books, a room with books for adults on topics as varied as gardening, sports, and business (as well as, of course, hundreds of novels from the most popular to the most obscure), as well as rare books, collectibles, cook books, and much more.
Whether you’re hunting for back issues of literary magazines or Season 4 of that TV show you can’t stop watching, there is likely to be something at this sale to grab your interest. 
We hope to see you at the Library of The Chathams this weekend!

July 13, 2018

To the Editor,

I moved to Chatham from Ohio in 1961 and left just over a year or so ago. My daughters went through the school system and one of them still lives there with her son.

Clearly, we found the Library and local educational opportunities to our liking.
