The well-known and much-loved purple beech tree, planted on the common in 1892, was taken down in November 2012. Present on that day was local photographer Steve Hardwood, who chronicled the process of bringing the tree down.
He donated his series of photographs to the library, to commemorate the event and the life of the tree. Steve's photographs were supplemented by additional photos from the collections of Fred Merriam and the Chelmsford Historical Society, and Library staff also researched news articles about the tree.
This entire collection was then framed and hung in the Group Study Room, on the lower level of the Library, near the Library's other historical resources. Please check out this tribute the next time you're in the Library.
The Library would like to thank Steve Hardwood for getting the ball rolling, and also Fred Merriam and the Chelmsford Historical Society for contributing to the project. The generosity of community members like this helps preserve Chelmsford for future generations.Posted in Library Information, Resources | No Comments »
This allows patrons to print directly from their home computers, laptops, or smartphones (any device with an internet connection), and pick up their print job at the library.
To get started, go to http://www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/webprint and follow the steps. These printing options are available:
You can upload a file from your computer, or paste the address of a webpage to print. During the print process you'll name your print job and get a job reference number. After the job is sent, you can pick up your print job at the Reference Desk on the lower level of the main library (print jobs are automatically deleted after 72 hours).
The whole process is easy, but we also have an instructional booklet available [pdf]. If you have any questions about this service, or anything the library offers, please contact the Reference Desk at email@example.com or 978-256-5521 x211.Posted in Library Information | No Comments »

Chelmsford Telemedia records many of the programs held at the Library, for rebroadcast on television. They also provide these programs on DVD to the Library, as well as put them online so they are available anytime.
The DVDs are in our catalog and available in the Library's DVD collection upstairs, and circulate just like regular DVDs.
The videos are in the Exhibits section - just choose what you'd like to watch from the dropdown box. Each video is displayed in the player - such as "The Science of Natural Disasters" with Dr. Chuck Fidler from May 11, 2012:
Thanks to the staff and volunteers of Chelmsford Telemedia for providing this great resource to the community. If you have any questions about Library programs, finding the DVDs, or watching them online, please contact the Reference Desk.
