Join us in giving a warm welcome to Morgan Davies, the new Youth Services Manager. Morgan comes to us with BA Degree in Journalism from Ohio State University and a M.ED from University of Phoenix. She did her student teaching at McBee High School and taught 8th grade ELA in Richmond County.
Morgan will be working with each branch library in our county to develop meaningful and exciting programs for children, birth to 17. In addition to the traditional story hours, Morgan will be visiting daycares, schools, and planning activities for tweens and teens, as well as, coordinating the summer reading program, a nationwide event. We welcome Morgan and look forward to the exciting programs she will be offering beginning the first week in October.
The library will be featuring a “Fall Frenzy” book sale on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the main library in Chesterfield. This book sale will be held in conjunction with the Chesterfield Fall Festival. We will accept donations until Sept. 21. Please — no magazines, encyclopedias, textbooks, or damaged books -gently used books will be graciously received!
In addition to loads and loads of books, we will have books on tape and video cassette tapes. This will be the last chance for shoppers to buy anything on tape because the library will no longer accept donations in these formats. Fill a shopping bag with videos or books on tape from the wide selection and spend only $1.00 per bag.
Come check out our selection of books. You’ll find military, cars, aviation, and general history books, biographies, cook books, sports, poetry, science, politics, business, religion, literature, relationship, health and true crime. The book sale also offers hardback and paperback romance in every genre from inspirational to fluff. Other genres for sale include an extensive selection of westerns, men’s action adventure, sci-fi, fantasy, and mysteries. A large selection of hardback fiction will also available.
Tables will be filled to the brim with books in all genres. After 12:00, buy a library tote, fill it with books and pay only $5.00. All books must go!
The Library Board of Trustees, the Friends Group, and the library staff will be working to help find just the right books for you. Money raised by the book sale will help fund library projects and programs such as the Summer Reading Program, Book vs Movie Programs, and to purchase books and materials for use by patrons.
