The Library has partnered with the Chelmsford Open Space Stewards to create a "StoryWalk" along a trail at the Sunny Meadow Community Garden.
The entire story of Sheep take a Hike, by Nancy Shaw and illustrated by Margot Apple, has been laminated and placed on sign posts along the trail, so kids and adults alike can read the story as they hike the trail.
The story follows a group of sheep taking a nature hike - which is a perfect summertime story. The StoryWalk will be changed periodically throughout the year, to match the season. Taking the StoryWalk is a fun way to enjoy the story and get a little exercise.
If you can, come join library staff and COSS volunteers for the StoryWalk ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, July 27th, at 9:00 am. Even if you can't make it then, please enjoy StoryWalk all year round!
Thank you for the Friends of the Library for funding our StoryWalk project, and to the COSS volunteers for their work in the field. Also, thanks to Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, for coming up with the original StoryWalk idea!
This StoryWalk is located at Sunny Meadow Community Garden, at the end of Robin Hill Road near Route 27/Kate's Corner in South Chelmsford.
There are more requests than ever before to have volunteers read in the classrooms. Please consider taking a few moments to participate in this community wide program. The teachers and the students so appreciate it!
This year's community read-in is the week of April 8-12, 2013.
If you're interested in encouraging literacy by taking some time out of your day on and reading to school kids, please print, complete, and return the 2013 Chelmsford Community Read-In interest form to:

Chelmsford's 2009 Summer Reading program is here!
This year's program has been tailored to fit with the 2009 One Book Chelmsford, Three Cups of Tea and author Greg Mortenson's picture book edition, Listen to the Wind. There are many aspects to this year's Summer Reading program, but the two main themes are collecting Pennies for Peace and outdoor adventures.
For reading logs, hiking passbooks, book suggestions and links to trail maps of Chelmsford, visit the Summer Reading webpage or stop by the Children's Room.Posted in Books, Childrens, One Book, Reading Room | No Comments »
The Chelmsford Library has a new Librarian for Youth Services, Patricia Horan. Tricia provided a brief biography as a way to introduce herself:
The Library is very happy to have Tricia as part of the team. Stop by the Children's Room or Young Adult area to introduce yourself, and give Tricia suggestions for books or programs you're interested in.Posted in Childrens, Library Information, Teens | No Comments »
At the beginning of the month, the Children's Room announced they would be building a large Sierpinski Tetrahedron (read more) throughout February.
Now that we're down to the last week of the month, final assembly has begun. And it's huge.
Support for the project has come from kids, adults and staff, and volunteers are gluing together stage 1 and 2 tetrahedrons into stage 3 and 4 tetrahedrons (see an illustration of stages 0 through 3). And finally on Thursday (2/21), a stage 5 tetrahedron was assembled - that's 1,024 individual tetrahedrons!
It stands well over three feet high, and takes up two tabletops. Additional assembly work is being done in the McCarthy Meeting Room and the Library's lobby, where the stage 5 is on display.
Stop by the library to see the progress and assemble a few of your own tetrahedrons, and see more of the tetrahedron photographs on our flickr account.
