This Week in Chester History…

Chester librarians taught a series of courses at West Morris Regional High School in 1960. Students learned how to use the library’s collection, how to research using the reference collection, and how to find books specifically for special assignments and reports. The instruction was collaboratively planned with English and Science teachers at the high school. More than 50 classes visited the school library and 40 hours were spent with freshmen, teaching them how to use the card catalog. Source: Observer-Tribune

In 1960, Chester Township School held its annual Book Fair. The three-day affair featured a large children’s books display of items that could be ordered through the E.M. Hale Company and Book Shop in Morristown. Proceeds from the sale went to purchasing more books for the school library. Source: Observer-Tribune
