At the town meeting in April, town meeting representatives voted to approve the library budget - which included restoration of Sunday hours at the main library from October to May.
Sunday hours begin this weekend, October 14, 2012, and continue until the weekend prior to Memorial Day weekend, May 19, 2013. Sunday hours will be 1:00 - 5:00 PM.
The library hasn't been open on Sundays since 2007, due to tightened budgets. We're happy to have this funding restored, so the library is able to serve patrons at a time that is convenient for many people.
If you're out and about on Sunday, stop in!Posted in Library Information | No Comments »
The entire MVLC catalog will be getting a new look starting Monday, October 1st. Chelmsford has been testing it for the last few weeks, so you may have already seen it, and maybe even suggested ways to make it better.
The new catalog will be an improvement over the previous catalog. One very noticeable thing should be an improvement in the speed of the catalog, and also fewer "empty pages" (when all you see is a blank page and have to reload it).
Many new features will be introduced, including:
We've had a lot of great feedback so far from patrons who've tested the new catalog, so we're excited to launch the new design and features. If you notice any glitches after Monday, or have any questions whatsoever, please contact the Reference Desk.Posted in Computer, Library Information | No Comments »
The library catalog for the Merrimack Valley is in the process of getting both a new look and some new features. Chelmsford is one of the libraries that will be testing out the new catalog - and we'd like to hear what you think.
Some of the new features are:
Read about how to use some of the new features in this version of the catalog.
We'll be testing the new version of the catalog until September, when it will go live for all the area libraries. In the meantime, our old catalog is still available.
Love it or hate it, please submit your feedback through the "Patron Catalog Survey" link in the top right corner of the new catalog! Or, talk to any library staff person - and ask us questions, too!Posted in Computer, Library Information | No Comments »

The raffle prize is a baseball-themed basket, with books and Lowell Spinners tickets. Of course, the information you provide on the survey is very important too - we'll use it to help tailor library services to the needs of Chelmsford, to make sure we're providing tools and services most useful to Town residents.
For instance: many people are indicating they'd like the library to be open on Sundays. So, we will be! Sunday hours will begin the weekend after Columbus Day, October 14, 2012, and end the weekend prior to Memorial Day weekend, May 19, 2013. Sunday hours will be 1:00 - 5:00 PM.
The more information we hear from you, the better we can meet the needs of our community. Thank you!
