Look at this adorable felt fox coffee sleeve! We will be gluing and sewing a felt coffee sleeve to look like a fox. Keep this for yourself or share with a friend. Join us on Tuesday, November 21 at 6:00 p.m.

Due to the fact that we need to buy supplies and seating is limited, registration is required. Call the library at 483-2713 to register.

The library’s Craft Night is the third Tuesday of each month where we do a make – and – take project. This program is geared for adults (in High School or older).


Game Night

CaddyStacks Fundraiser


Join us for two days of fun on November 4 and 5 for our putt-putt fundraiser, benefiting the Friends of the Chatham Area Public Library!  From 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 4 and from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 5, the Library will be transformed into 9 holes of family fun. Additional prizes will be given to those who “Beat the Pro” and for those who get a hole in one on the course. Those who plan to attend should arrive no later than an hour before we close, so they have enough time to complete their round. Cost is $5 per person and refreshments will be included with the price of admission.
