The online catalog the library uses for ebooks and downloadable audiobooks, called Overdrive, updated its website with a new look this weekend. If you haven't already, please check it out at http://mvlc.lib.overdrive.com.
There is an online guide that introduces all the new features, and new printed guidelines will be ready soon. A few important changes to note are:
The new look only applies to the website - people using the mobile app will not notice any change. If you use Internet Explorer 7 you will need to download the Google Chrome plug-in to display the page correctly, as that version of the browser does not support all the features of the new layout. Alternatively you could update to the latest version of the browser.
If anyone has any questions please contact the Reference Desk.Posted in Current News, Overdrive | No Comments »
The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners is researching whether or not a state-wide library card (a single card that would work in every library in the state) would be of interested to residents of Massachusetts.
In order to gauge interest, and expectations, of a state-wide library card, the MBLC is asking that everyone please fill out a short survey and let them know what you think:
The idea of a state-wide library card grew out of the MBLC's Resource Sharing Committee, which is trying to identify ways to improve library services and better allocate budget funds to best benefit Massachusetts library patrons. Your input will definitely help in their efforts. Thanks!Posted in Current News | No Comments »
The newly renovated North Chelmsford Town Hall, home of the Chelmsford Community Center, is almost ready for the public!
Come share in the excitement as the renovations and available rental space are unveiled to the public! Guests will include the after school program, Springboard.
The North Town Hall is located at 31 Princeton St., North Chelmsford. There will also be a Grand Opening on September 14, from 6:00pm-9:00pm - visit http://chelmsfordcommunitycenter.org for more information.
Sponsored by the North Chelmsford Village Association.
The library is now offering easy access to the latest articles in popular magazines!
For years patrons have had access to these same magazines, but they've been sort of buried in our subscription databases. Now, there's an "Online Newsstand" that displays magazine covers that lets you click right into that magazine.
This is available both on our main website and also on our mobile website - that way, you can have easy access to read magazines while you're on the go. New articles are added as the magazine is published, and you can also scroll to see past issues. There will also be more magazines added soon, too!
If you have any questions about accessing these magazines or any of our databases, please contact the Reference Desk.Posted in Current News, Reference, Resources | No Comments »
The Bruce Freeman Rail Trail behind the Chelmsford Mall, at Manahan Street in Chelmsford, will be closed at times during a two week period beginning August 1.
Demolition of the Town-owned building located on Katrina Road, adjacent to the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail, is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 1.
For safety considerations, including dust from the debris, the section of the rail trail adjacent to the building will be closed during portions of the demolition work. The closures will impact trail users wishing to use the section of trail between Manahan Street and Glen Avenue during the work week. This section is in the portion of the trail north of Chelmsford Center and south of the Route 3 terminus. The trail is expected to be open on weekends.
This is the section of trail that will be closed:
