Chatham Community Library is 5 years old!

5_year_birthdayChatham Community Library is five years old, and we want you to help us celebrate!

On Saturday, October 10th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm, the library will be hosting a birthday celebration complete with live music, food trucks, and activities for the whole family!

Music will be provided by Pittsboro’s own Tommy Edwards and The Bluegrass Experience as well as our own staff member Wes Collins.

The awesome Deli-icious food truck and Barney’s Famous Hot Dogs will be here to offer some wonderful food options for dinner.  For dessert, we’ll have everyone’s favorite – the Maple View Ice Cream truck!

The Scrap Exchange will provide crafting fun for the kids from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, and there will also be bouncy houses and face painting!

Chatham County Sheriff’s Department will be on hand with Ident-A-Kid kits to do identification cards for your children. 

There will also be some cool giveaways while supplies last.  Bring your lawn chairs and come celebrate our first 5 years with us.  The festivities will take place in the courtyard at the end of the building closest to the college.  We can’t wait to see you here!

We had a great time hosting J &P Voelkel back in March. Their performance was top notch and everyone had a blast. Over 30 people lined up to eat mealworms! Many thanks to the Voelkel’s for visiting and teaching us so much about the Maya. Can’t wait for book three in the series, The River of No Return, that comes out this fall! Book 1 and 2 are here at the library for you to check out. Be on the lookout for a special summer reading prize from the Voelkels.
