Chatham Community Library

Yesterday C and I went to check out the brand new Chatham Community Library located in Pittsboro. And Holy Library, this place is definitely the nicest book-digs in the Triangle! And not necessarily in offerings (they moved their collection from the small Pittsboro Memorial Library where not much fit, so they are working on expanding and purchasing more now). But in space: wowza!

This library is way more modern and open than anything else in Pittsboro. The building is impressive and makes me want to spend time here. It is bright, light, airy yet also quiet and calming.

The kids' story room is the most beautiful I have seen. There are colored glass lights dangling from the ceiling and the walls are painted with a fantasy mural that whisks you away. I have not yet been to story time. They are offered on Tuesdays: 9:30 am for 3 & under crowd; and 10:00 am for 3 & over crowd. But a blog reader tells me it is great.

In the kids' area of the library, there is ample seating in perfect kid sizes. There are tables, chairs, red tuffets, computer tables (and those computers are way nicer than my humble little PC), and, again, lots of light.

Note that the website for the library is not very helpful, but the staff is very nice. So your best bet to get information is to call.

I am truly impressed with this library and can't wait to spend more time here.

We love the new library, and story time is great! Beth, the Children's librarian, is awesome.
