Do you enjoy reading and then discussing what you thought of the book with others? Come join one of the library's book groups!
We have several options for book groups - morning and afternoon sessions at both the main library and at the MacKay branch. Here's a brief breakdown on each one:
Two new groups recently started regular meetings at the Chelmsford Library:
Chinese Conversation Circle
Technical Skills Share Group
Both of these groups are open to everyone, as are the other groups, programs or exhibits that take place at the library. For more information, please contact Kathy Cryan-Hicks at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521 x109, or view upcoming scheduled meetings on our Events Calendar.Posted in Library Information, Programs | No Comments »
The Library has a new events calendar: http://calendar.chelmsfordlibrary.org
This is where all Library programs and events will be listed, including non-profit community groups using the Library's meeting rooms.
The new calendar includes a search menu on the left, which lets you limit to events based on location, type and age group. To see a summary of any event, hover your mouse over the event on the calendar, or click on an event to see the complete details.
To keep up with what's going on at the library, be sure to bookmark http://calendar.chelmsfordlibrary.org and subscribe to our RSS feed. You can also build different RSS feeds based on your search criteria - just search for your location/type/age combination, then click the RSS Feed link near the top of the calendar. That way, you'll always be notified of the events you're interested in.
Soon we’ll also have an automatic way for groups to reserve rooms at the library. In the meantime, please refer to our website for meeting room reservations. If you have questions about the new calendar or booking a meeting room, please contact the Library’s Administrative Office at 978-256-5521 x100 or email@example.com.
And don't forget the most important event this week: Trick-or-Treat in Chelmsford is 5-8pm on Saturday, Oct. 31st!Posted in Events, Library Information, Programs | No Comments »
Join the library’s staff for brown bag lunch series called "Now... It's Your Turn." While this program is aimed at baby boomers - you've worked hard, and now it's time to relax and enjoy yourself - it is open to everyone.
The lunch series will be at noon by the library's fireplace, and will feature book talks on both current and classic titles you can add to your summer reading list.
If you're looking for reading suggestions, check out the latest series bibliography or visit the library's Reading Room web page. Then, come to one of the lunches and enjoy talking about what you're reading.
For more information, visit the "Now... It's Your Turn webpage," or contact Mayleen Kelley (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Becky Herrmann (email@example.com) at 978-256-5521.Posted in Books, Programs, Reading Room | No Comments »
From May 20th to June 17th, the MacKay Branch will be a drop-off point for The Story Box Project. This is a global story sharing project - stories that are dropped off by Chelmsford residents will be collected in a Story Box that will be shared with other New England communities, and they'll share their stories with us.
Before the story box is sent on, we will hold a Story Box Celebration on Wednesday June 17th at 6:30 p.m. where we'll share many of the stories we collected. Our Stories will then be packaged up and the Story Box will be sent off to another library in the region where they will collect stories and send it on to somewhere else.
The Story Box should make it’s way back to Chelmsford in early 2010 packed full of stories from all over New England.
Story submissions begin on May 20th. You can drop it off in person at the MacKay Library, submit them through our online drop box, or mail them to MacKay Library, Story Box Project, 43 Newfield St, N.Chelmsford, 01863.
The Story Box Project was founded by Kevin Cordi, an Academic Storyteller at Ohio State University. For more information, check out the MacKay Programs webpage, or contact Bonnie Rankin at the MacKay Branch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521 x214.Posted in Events, Programs | No Comments »
