Chrisman Library News

Submitted by the Chrisman Public Library

We are having our super, marvelous, big, big, BIG annual sidewalk book sale on Friday September10 from 8 to 5 and Saturday September 11 from 8 to ?. We have more books than ever before and YOU get to choose how much they cost! Every donation is appreciated!
A book is a marvelous thing! Books are all alike in that they have pages printed on both sides, held together by a spine, and a protective cover.
This style was invented by the Romans who called it a codex. The codex was a distinct improvement over bookrolls (scrolls) by making printed information cheaper and more accessible to readers.
The invention of the movable printing press further made books less expensive and made knowledge more available to all classes of people. Books, as sources of information now have competition in radio, TV, and internet. But, a book does not require electricity or an internet connection to work. You can always read a good book! We live in amazing times!
While you’re here perusing the many books on the sale tables, please, take a look at the windows of the library which have photos and posters in remembrance of 9/11/2001.
