I overheard a pleasant moment of reminiscence while waiting in line at Chilmark Chocolates this week. Margaret Maida spotted Ted Meinelt and told him how well she remembered making holiday crafts in his art class at the Tisbury School some years ago. Needless to say, Ted remembered it all very well. Many of his students still fondly recall those classes.

Congratulations to the Chilmark Library, ranked number one in the state in per capita circulation. The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners annually releases these figures and this is the second year in a row that Chilmark has ranked first. They also ranked second in circulation per staff hour, which means they are the second, most productive and efficient library staff in the commonwealth. We knew that! Cheers to those hard working folks.
