In Stitches is the Chester Library group of knitters/crocheters/sewers (or what-have-you) who meet every Monday evening. Needlecrafters of all skill levels are encouraged to attend, whether to learn or to solve a problem or just socialize with like-minded crafters, novices and experts alike.  Usually they have WAY too much fun (hence the moniker “In Stitches”!) but they always welcome new members and drop-ins.  Monday evenings from 6-8 p.m.

Coloring for Adults – Take a break, turn off your brain and relax a bit by popping into the library and color. We will have fun coloring books (find a page you like and a staff member will copy it for you) and pencils. Sorry kids – adults only.

Games! – There’s a variety of games to play at the library, we even have puzzles you can take to a table to work on, just inquire at the circulation desk.

Meet Molly – The library has an American Girl doll that can be checked out for 1 week.  Molly comes in a travel case with a pair of pajamas and slippers as well as a hairbrush.  Now your special little someone can have the opportunity to play with an American Girl doll without incurring the cost of buying one.  Molly is located in our new American Girl section in the children’s room.

 

Bring your child to the library and let them explore our Early Learning Literacy Station (AWE).

Bring your child in and let them explore all there is to offer and have fun while learning.
