About Chickerell Library

Chickerell Community Library started in 2013 after the county was going to close it along with 19 others. Volunteers got together and saved it. The county provides the system and equipment but the volunteers run the library.

Happy Christmas.

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year to all our hard working volunteers.
