Chatham 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!
Celebrate “Read an eBook Day” this Friday, September 18th! What are you reading or listening to? We’ll post your comments to our display in the library. (Or stop by and post titles yourself!)
You can also share what you’re reading and why you love eBooks at www.readaneBookDay.com or on social media using the hashtag #eBookLove. And don’t forget to include us in your post! We’re @CCPLib on Twitter, and Chatham Community Library on Facebook.

Patrons of Chatham County Public Libraries will start to see a new image on library cards that heralds the modern library system across the county.
Library staff member Sharen Faye designed the logo, which reflects both the roofline of Chatham Community Library in Pittsboro (main branch) as well as an open book.
The logo will go hand-in-hand with a new tagline: “Connect, Learn, Grow,” which represents the library’s mission to connect people with information they need, often using new technologies.
The library system will begin using the logo and tagline immediately on webpages and printed items, though it may take several months to completely transition.
