The Circulator

If your group is planning an event, festival, or gathering and you would like to invite us, get in touch. We can set up shop for casual interactions, make book recommendations, help with questions, and bring some fun all-ages activities.

Want the Circulator to come to you?

We deliver unique experiences in the Chapel Hill community with a fun, flexible lineup of events that spark curiosity, inspire learning, and create connections.

  • Here's where we will be
    • Holiday Party at Hargraves
      December 2, 2017
      11:00 am - 1:00 pm
      - We need your help to collect 200 new, unwrapped books for local kids – from 6 months old to 16 years old – to be distributed at the Public Housing Holiday Party. The tree in our lobby has ideas, from board books to picture books and novels for teens, though any of these ‘Best of Books’ would be great. Please bring them in by December 1!
    • Holiday Parade
      December 9, 2017
      10:00 am - 12:00 pm
      - Look for us in the annual downtown Chapel Hill Holiday Parade.

    The Circulator: Wherever. Whenever. Whyever.
