Now, once again we're asking for your help in choosing the next One Book Chelmsford, for 2011. Think about all the books you've read, or the books you'd like to read, and let us know which titles you'd like selected for the Town to read in 2011.
The next time you're in the library, give your nomination suggestion to any staff member. Or, you can submit your nomination online by clicking the "Submit Your Nomination" link on our homepage or using the One Book Nomination Form.
The One Book Committee will review all the suggestions and narrow them down to three final choices. Then on Election Day in November, the entire Town will vote for which of those three they'd like to be One Book Chelmsford 2011.Posted in Books, One Book | No Comments »
Seattle Librarian Nancy Pearl recently appeared on National Public Radio to highlight a few great books she that felt might not get noticed by readers this summer.
The titles of each book are listed below, with links so you can request the book from the library's catalog (or request that we purchase it if we haven't already). If you'd like to read Nancy Pearl's description of the books, check out the story on NPR.
For help requesting one of these books from our catalog, or with placing a purchase request, please contact the Reference Desk. For more reading suggestions, check out our Reading Room page, and other book recommendations by Nancy Pearl.Posted in Books, Reading Room | No Comments »
This event will take place at 1:00 PM at the Chelmsford High School Performing Arts Center (directions and map). There is no admission fee, but we are asking people to register on our website so we know what size crowd to expect. Shutter Island will be discussed, but attendees are also encouraged to ask questions about any of Dennis Lehane's books - including the upcoming Moonlight Mile.Books, Events, One Book | No Comments »
