Attention researchers and genealogists! The Chelmsford Library just received some "new" older city directories on microfilm. The new additions to the collection are:
These are available in the microfilm cabinets downstairs in the Reference area. The library also has microfilm holdings of Chelmsford newspapers, the Boston Globe, early Chelmsford Town records, and early Massachusetts records.

Starting in September, the library will be offering a new series of small group instruction classes.
The topic will always be technology, but each month will cover a different aspect - ebooks, using library resources, streaming movies and TV shows. The schedule for the rest of 2014 is:
The sessions will be held on Wednesdays in the Library's Conference Room on the lower level. Each session will be repeated during the month, once in the morning and once in the evening, so patrons can come to whichever session is most convenient for them.
Registration is required and space is limited - sign up on our events calendar. Contact the Reference Department for more information or if you need help registering at email@example.com or 978-256-5521 x211.Posted in Computer, Library Information, Programs | No Comments »
Stop by the Readers Advisory Desk in the library (across from the main desk) to get suggestions for what to read next. If you can't make it into the library, use our online Reading Recommendations Form to give us some information about your reading tastes, and we'll provide you with a list of books we think you'll enjoy.
If you prefer the self-serve approach, our Reading Room webpage has several reading lists and other tools to discover new titles and authors.
Please contact Christine Sharbrough, Head of Readers Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521 x210, if you have any questions about these tools or books in general.Posted in Books, Library Information, Resources | No Comments »
Chelmsford patrons have access to a new museum pass through the Library: Einstein's Workshop, in Burlington.
Einstein's Workshop offers many science and technology classes, and has a great drop-in space. The Library's pass offers free admission during drop in hours and admits up to 2 children.
Drop-in hours vary, so check our museum pass website for more information, and to reserve a pass. You can also visit Einstein's Workshop's website at http://www.einsteinsworkshop.com for more information on their activities.
In other museum pass-related news, the library is running a trial for the summer to make our passes more accessible. We're going to waive our regular pass limits for any day-of-use pass that isn't already reserved that day. So, if you already have something booked, and another museum you'd like to visit is also available on that day, you can now borrow both of them.
At the end of the summer we'll evaluate how the trial went and decide how to move forward. If you have any questions or suggestions about museum passes, please contact the Reference Desk at email@example.com or 978-256-5521 x211.Posted in Library Information, Resources | No Comments »
