Chrisman Library News

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank the Good Samaritan who plowed in front of the library. I was out there with my shovel trying, but there was a deep ridge of snow and it was a pretty hopeless situation. So—THANK YOU!
This is a great time of year to take it easy and read some good books. You can look at Chrisman’s collection on-line at cmnp.illshareit.com by selecting “my library” from the pull-down menu under “all formats”. If you don’t click on “my library”, you will get to look at the holdings of all 500+ libraries in the IHLS system. Which is great for ordering that special book that you want. We would be glad to help you do this if you need help.
We did close one day during that horrible weather. So if it is just amazingly bad, please, give us a call before coming. We both live in town and are pretty brave, but last Friday was SO BAD!
A recipe that you might want to try. From our Sesquicentennial cookbook, of course!
