The Chatham Public Library is hosting an informational meeting about the Neighbors of Northern Columbia County: a grassroots not-for-profit organization designed to help network locals as they address issues of aging and/or living alone. The NNCC model is a variant of the Village Movement concept, which has grown throughout the United States in response to previously unmet needs and wishes of those wanting to remain in their own homes as they age.
This meeting will be held outside on the library lawn. Attendees are invited to bring their own chairs. More info at https://www.nncc1.org/

The Chatham Public Library would like to thank our community for their generous support during our recent Food Drive. Staff made 5 separate deliveries to the Chatham & Ghent Food Pantries, amounting to hundreds of pounds of food stuffs, pet food, sundries and personal items.
Due to the success of our community’s donations, the Chatham Food Pantry has arranged to continue the drive and will be making weekly stops to collect donations!
