Chelsea Public Library now has a blog! We are excited to use this page as a way to keep you informed of things happening at the library, as well as share our thoughts on books that we recently read. Ashley Jamele and I would also like to include pieces written by the community, so if you have a book review you would like to share, send it our way! You can email your review to email@example.com.
The last couple of weeks have been hopping here at Chelsea Library! Rick Winston, a local Vermont author, shared stories from his book, Red Scare in the Green Mountains, with us last Thursday. Rick worked with the Vermont Historical Society on creating a conference about communism in Vermont during the McCarthy era. It was interesting to hear about the research he had conducted and the role that McCarthyism played in Vermont.
The Second Annual Chili Challenge was held on Saturday, April 6th! Approximately 100 people came and tasted 19 delicious chilis. Ryan Morrison, Kana Johnson, and Ashley Jamele won first, second, and third place! Congratulations! We are all looking forward to next year! Thanks to The Friends of Chelsea Public Library, Mascoma Savings Bank, and Will's Store for sponsoring this event!
Ashley and I are currently working on Summer Reading plans. Keep an eye open for future programs! The theme this year is "A Universe of Stories," so get excited! The Black Hole picture is definitely getting me in the spirit for a space-themed summer!
I look forward to keeping in touch with you! I also hope to post a list of recently added items so you have collection updates. Don't forget, you can place holds on items! Let me or Ashley know if you need any assistance.
Enjoy the slightly warmer weather!
