New Library StoryWalk at Sunny Meadow

   Tuesday, February 4th, 2014 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

The Emperor Lays an EggTo help celebrate Chelmsford Winterfest 2014, the library installed a new StoryWalk at Sunny Meadow.

This time, the StoryWalk is the entire story of The Emperor Lays an Egg, by Brenda Z. Guiberson. All of the pages have been laminated and placed on sign posts along the trail, so kids and adults alike can read the story as they hike the trail.

Even if you didn't make it to Sunny Meadow during Winterfest, don't worry - the StoryWalk will be up for the next few months, so enjoy it whenever you can (and however many times you like!).

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.

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!

Chelmsford WinterfestCome out and enjoy winter with Chelmsford Winterfest!

There are a variety of events around town this year, with both traditional Winterfest events and new activities. This year, the kick-off event is:

Friday, 5:30 -7:30 p.m. - Friday Night Lights: Night Snow Shoeing or Walk at Russell Mill Forest

Join the Chelmsford Conservation Commission for a special edition of "Friday Night Lights." We will meet at the main parking lot of Russell Mill Soccer Fields (105 Mill Road) at 5:30 p.m. and break into groups to explore the town conservation land. Different groups will allow everyone to participate, from a slow, leisurely walk to challenging trails at a moderate pace. Please bring a flashlight or headlamp and your own snowshoes or boots. This event is free and family-friendly.

From there, the weekend of low temperatures and high fun winds its way through a family movie night, ice skating, farmers' market, walks, photograph contest, stories, dancing, and lots of great food.

To conclude Chelmsford Winterfest 2014 in style, join us from 2:00 - 4:00 pm at the main library:
