Exams are proctored by the Reference staff, free of charge (other than what you may be charged by your school, or for postage). Usually, the process is for you to submit the Chelmsford Library as a proctor site to your school, and they will contact us to confirm we are a valid location. In general, the information they will need is the following contact information:
We can accommodate either online or paper-based tests, and students will take their tests in one of our study rooms. The study rooms have large windows and are situated right next to the Reference Desk, so students can be observed at all times during their test.
For more information, or to schedule a proctor session for one of your exams, contact the Reference Desk at the information above.Posted in Library Information | No Comments »

The Chelmsford Library recently became a FamilySearch affiliate library, which means patrons interested in genealogy have greater and more convenient access to the wealth of resources available through FamilySearch.org.
FamilySearch is the world's largest repository of free genealogical records, based in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. It has amassed billions of birth, marriage, death, census, land, and court records of genealogical significance from over 130 countries.
You can search the Family History Library Catalog online at FamilySearch.org to see available records and to order microfilm. There is a nominal fee of $7.50 to order a microfilm, which is then sent to the Chelmsford Library. Once the film arrives, patrons use the Chelmsford Library's microfilm reader to view it.
More genealogy research tools are available on the library's website. If you have any questions about FamilySearch or researching your family tree, please contact the Reference Desk at email@example.com or 978-256-5521 x211.

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 »
