Chrisman Library News

Thank you to Gary and Barb Oates for working the WHOLE time during the “Our Town” event and almost selling out of the Chrisman Library cookbooks and selling the kid-designed bookmarks! Luckily we will have more for the Sesquicentennial!
We are fortunate to have dedicated board members and volunteers to help. The Library believes the “Our Town” event was a huge success, and we thank all who participated in making Chrisman look good for WCIA!
The children/student patrons can come into the Library to pick up their program packets! The readers in each class who read the most books were Mae Rogers (K-3) who read 39 books and Emma Swinderman (4-8) who read 48 books! Each received a $25.00 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble.
The raffle of two additional $25 gift certificates to Barnes and Noble were won by Wynn Rogers and Libby Lorton. Second place winners were Hazel Rogers (K-3) who read 25 books and Carter Swinderman (4-8) who read 33 books! We’re looking forward to next year’s reading program!
The Chrisman Public Library will be closed on Monday, September 5, 2022 in honor of Labor Day! Please come visit us the rest of the week!
