Nominate Your Choice For One Book Chelmsford 2011

   Tuesday, August 24th, 2010 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

One Book Chelmsford logoThe Library had a great time with Dennis Lehane's Shutter Island for 2010's One Book Chelmsford, and we hope you did, too!

Now, once again we're asking for your help in choosing the next One Book Chelmsford, for 2011. Think about all the books you've read, or the books you'd like to read, and let us know which titles you'd like selected for the Town to read in 2011.

The next time you're in the library, give your nomination suggestion to any staff member. Or, you can submit your nomination online by clicking the "Submit Your Nomination" link on our homepage or using the One Book Nomination Form.

The One Book Committee will review all the suggestions and narrow them down to three final choices. Then on Election Day in November, the entire Town will vote for which of those three they'd like to be One Book Chelmsford 2011.

Shutter Island, the Movie

   Monday, February 22nd, 2010 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Shutter Island movie posterAs you may have heard, Chelmsford's 2010 One Book selection, Shutter Island is being released as a movie this month. We're hoping that many people will see it, in addition to reading the book.

The movie opened Friday, Feb 19th, and has been getting good reviews. If you haven't seen it yet, how about seeing it with the Library? Details are still being worked out, but we're hoping to have a "Chelmsford night" at a local cinema, so many of us who read the book can all watch the movie together.

More information about the movie:

In other movie news, the February and March Library Cinema Nights will be showing Dennis Lehane movies. February's showing was Mystic River, and the March 18th Cinema Night will be another of his books. Check the Cinema Night webpage or the Library's Calendar for more details.

Summer Reading Begins June 6

   Friday, June 5th, 2009 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Listen to the Wind book coverChelmsford's 2009 Summer Reading program is here!

This year's program has been tailored to fit with the 2009 One Book Chelmsford, Three Cups of Tea and author Greg Mortenson's picture book edition, Listen to the Wind. There are many aspects to this year's Summer Reading program, but the two main themes are collecting Pennies for Peace and outdoor adventures.

  1. Everyone is encouraged to keep track of the time you spend reading, and for every 5 hours of reading, the Friends of the Library will contribute 100 pennies for peace. Our goal is to donate $500 by the end of the summer to Greg Mortenson's foundation for building schools
  2. Enjoy hiking through Chelmsford! Chelmsford has many open spaces and trails, and hiking and exploring our community is a great way to start your own trek towards K2 like Greg Mortenson. The summer challenge for children is to hike 5 miles and record your adventures in your passbooks

For reading logs, hiking passbooks, book suggestions and links to trail maps of Chelmsford, visit the Summer Reading webpage or stop by the Children's Room.
