Chapelkill Library Public Health Alert
Stay off the cliffs this weekend. The sea and the sky are set to meet at midnight on Saturday. The coastal path marks the edge of the rift.
Chapelkill OmniBuses are now running a monthly service to Manchester. The 1919192 runs between Chapelkill Market and Piccadilly Bus Station every third Tuesday of the month at 2pm. There is no return service so passengers will have to make their own arrangements home. It is popular route so you will need to book at least 60 days in advance. Tickets can be purchased from the Front Desk but are no longer valid for travel. Please note, the driver for this service is a suspected alcoholic, so passengers will be expected to take turns. Responsibilities might include steering, changing gear, braking, tutting at passengers etc. A map and ticket machine will be made available on the day if and when and if necessary.
A Box of Ghosts
Wonderful new Puffin box set featuring Earthfasts and Mr Corbett’s Ghost along with collections of eerie tales edited by Alfred Hitchcock, Charles Molin and more.
Order your copy at the Front Desk now before some parent borrows it on their child’s ticket and pretends the boy’s dropped it down a well or some such place, just so he can keep it and not have to pay a fine. Sods. Make it all Reference Only I say and have done.
Enjoy the longest day. Darkness is coming.
Chapelkill. Waiting for you.
The prize in this year’s Chapelkill Easter Egg Hunt is a copy James Cessford’s A Chapelkill Portmanteau.
After the pitched battles that marred last year’s festivities, the book will also be available here for free on 19 and 20 April. If you still wish to brave the hunt a map is available at the Front Desk. A deposit of a favourite hat will be required.
Describing itself a collection of twisted folk tales and horror shorts to fascinate and unhinge, the collection carries a word of caution from the publisher, Chapelkill Library Press recommends that this anthology is not read alone. If the reader insists on doing so we suggest that you bolt the doors and windows, draw the curtains shut and check any dark corners for unwelcome guests.
You have been warned.
