This Week in Chester Library History — May 13-20, 1973

According to the May 17, 1973 “Chester Notes” section of the Observer-Tribune newspaper, the Chester Free Public Library recently added a number of nifty crafts and hobby titles to its host of offerings, including Fly Fishing the Lakes, by Rex Gerlack; The Complete Cat Encyclopedia, by Grace Pond; and Antique Finishing for Beginners, by Frederic Taubes. Two new sporting titles also made the paper: The Sports Immortals, by the Associated Press staff; and All About Bikes and Bicycling, by Max Alth. Additionally, the paper announced the return of world-traveler Marie O’Connor, who returned to work at the Library after a two-year hiatus, during which she and her family lived in fashionable Milan, Italy.
