Book lists: A summer reads preview!

   Friday, May 22nd, 2015 - by: Jessica Fitzpatrick

Your summer reading list is here! Our bimonthly presentation of new and recently released books highlighted many great titles for vacations, stay-cations, or just mini-escapes on your lunch break. Highlights from the presentation on May 22th are listed below. Hover your cursor over each book cover to view a brief description. Click on the image to go to the item in our catalog. The full list of books is available on our website. Join us for our next presentation, in two months, on July 17th.

Twenty-three-year-old Elaine Kelly doesn't earn much as a bank teller, and most of her salary goes toward caring for her terminally ill mother. When a lonely old man who deposits money at her bank every week gets hit and killed by a delivery truck, Elaine--a good Irish girl from Queens--thinks she's found the answer to her problems. She'll just transfer $1 million from the dead man's account into hers. Except that the lonely old man may not have been who he seemed. And when you take $1 million that isn't yours, it can cost you... way more

Upcoming Library Workshop: Your Library From Home

   Friday, May 1st, 2015 - by: Jessica Fitzpatrick

Finally, your favorite author has published libraryanytimeheadersmalla new book, and you can’t wait to read it. It’s 9:30 PM though - how are you going to place a request? Or maybe you’re a student working on a paper late at night, and you just need a few more sources. Or perhaps you’re just interested in finding out more about an author, or researching local services for a project, but if the library is closed, where will you go for the information?

The truth is, many of the services you receive in person or over the phone from a librarian are available to you from home using a computer that’s connected to the internet. You can perform catalog searches, place requests, create book lists, or check due dates.

In addition to the electronic library catalog, many robust and powerful databases are at your disposal 24/7. With just a library card and PIN, you have access to peer-reviewed journals, fully-searchable car manuals, consumer information, full-text business and computer book collections, detailed health information and much more.

Come see how your library never closes by attending one of two upcoming tech talk sessions:

All sessions are held in the main library’s first floor conference room. Space is limited so please register online here or at the reference desk.

The Chelmsford Library is now on Instagram!

   Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

CPLinstagramTo celebrate National Library Week, April 12 – 18, the Library is launching an Instagram account. You can find us at https://instagram.com/chelmsfordlibraryma/

Instagram is great for sharing quick photos, so we wanted to show off "24 hours in the library," with one photo every hour. (Since, unfortunately, we're not open 'round the clock, those 24 hours will be spread over the entire week.) We're going to be capturing slices of life in the library, our collections, our patrons - and maybe you!

Here's a sample of some photos so far:

Check us out at https://instagram.com/chelmsfordlibraryma/, follow us, share our photos, and comment to let us know what you think. And, be sure to tag your own photos #chelmsfordma so we can follow you too!
