Vote Now For Our City People's Choice Award!

We are very pleased to share with you that one of our very own Chandler Library volunteers, Monica Martorano, has been selected as a nominee for the annual For Our City People's Choice award. We are thrilled to be able to highlight an outstanding volunteer and the good work our volunteers do on a daily basis.  

The City of Chandler, Chandler Non-Profit Coalition (CNPC) and For Our City would like to honor the generous contributions of volunteers in the Chandler community. " Chandler's ongoing success has been built upon a foundation of the selfless contributions made every day by these volunteers," Mayor Jay Tibshraeny said. "Their compassionate efforts are solely to benefit others. They truly deserve our thanks and appreciation."

Each year for the Volunteer Recognition Awards, one individual is truly crowned a community award winner. Online votes and votes cast by those in attendance at the invite only awards breakfast pick the award winner. To read the nominations and cast your vote, please click here.

We are fortunate have so many outstanding volunteers within our library and we are excited that we have this opportunity to share how grateful we are for their involvement.

CPL Reads

CPL Reads is a Facebook group dedicated to monthly book discussions. Each week we pose a few questions for our members to comment on and share their thoughts whenever it is convenient for them!

February's book pick is The Jane Austen Project by Kathleen Flynn. There is is still time to read the book and join us.

England, 1815: Two travelers-Rachel Katzman and Liam Finucane-arrive in a field, disheveled and weighed down with hidden money. They are not what they seem, but colleagues from a technologically advanced future, posing as a doctor and his spinster sister. While Rachel and Liam aren't the first team of time travelers, their mission is the most audacious yet: meet, befriend, and steal from Jane Austen.

Our pick for March is The Address by Fiona Davis. To join the group, click here and submit your request.

American Heart Month
February is American Heart Month. The Chandler Public Library is doing its part, with the American Heart Association, to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease - which is the leading cause of death for men and women in America - and the importance of heart health.
How can the library help? You can find a wealth of medical information in  Health and Wellness Resource Center, a resource database collected from medical journals, encyclopedias, and other health-related publications. Check out health & fitness magazines from our  RB Digital magazine database. (Check out as many issues as you want and keep them as long as you like - there are no due dates!) All these resources are free to you with your library card and PIN numbers.
You can also browse for books in the library. Check the nonfiction shelf in the 610s for our health books, with books on heart disease at 616.12. We've also put together a  list of fiction and non-fiction books for you with "Heart" in the titles!
Tax Assistance

The Chandler Public Library is proud to announce the return of our free tax help. Tax assistance is available at our Downtown and Hamilton locations. For more information, click here.

These services are available on a first come, first serve basis during scheduled hours and are provided by outside agencies. A list of important documents to bring with you can be found here.
