We've offer Hoopla for over a year, allowing patrons to download audiobooks and watch streaming movies and television episodes, all using Hoopla. Now through Hoopla, you can also download ebooks and comic books to your computer or mobile device.
Downloadable comic books is a new digital format for us, and it compliments our print graphic novel collections (for Children, Teens, and Adults). The collection so far is small but growing, and some of the most popular titles have been:
The library has offered ebooks for years, mainly through our Overdrive catalog. The new ebooks through Hoopla are different. Just like the Hoopla audiobooks and videos, these ebooks are always available - which means no waiting lists!
Ebooks are a new format for Hoopla, so they're still building this collection too. A few of their featured ebook titles are:
All of these new Hoopla ebook and comic books can be checked out for 21 days (and of course downloaded again after that if you need more time, since they are always available!). Most of them are also available for both streaming and downloading to you mobile device.

Finally, your favorite author has published a new book, and you can’t wait to read it. It’s 9:30 PM though - how are you going to place a request? Or maybe you’re a student working on a paper late at night, and you just need a few more sources. Or perhaps you’re just interested in finding out more about an author, or researching local services for a project, but if the library is closed, where will you go for the information?
The truth is, many of the services you receive in person or over the phone from a librarian are available to you from home using a computer that’s connected to the internet. You can perform catalog searches, place requests, create book lists, or check due dates.
In addition to the electronic library catalog, many robust and powerful databases are at your disposal 24/7. With just a library card and PIN, you have access to peer-reviewed journals, fully-searchable car manuals, consumer information, full-text business and computer book collections, detailed health information and much more.
Come see how your library never closes by attending one of two upcoming tech talk sessions:Books, Computer, Library Information, Programs, Reference, Resources, Web Tools | No Comments »
Since the Dutton House next door to the library could not be sold to be moved, the Selectmen have approved its demolition. The work of clearing the building for demolition is to begin immediately, which also means that the house can no longer be used for book sale storage.
Therefore, starting on Tuesday, January 20th, 2015, the library cannot accept any book donations until the Dutton House is replaced with a new storage building. Plans for a storage building, additional parking, and more green space will be finalized by the Spring. We'll update everyone when the library will be able to once again happily accept donations from our patrons.
We apologize for this interruption in accept donations, because the library truly appreciates the generosity and support of the Chelmsford community.Posted in Current News, Friends of the Library, Library Information | No Comments »
