Finally, your favorite author has published a 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, electronic 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:Books, Computer, Programs, Reference, Resources, Web Tools | No Comments »
November and December are busy months for everyone, including Library volunteers and staff. As a result, a few of our scheduled programs and operating hours have been changed to accommodate the holiday season:

Starting in September, the library will be offering a new series of small group instruction classes.
The topic will always be technology, but each month will cover a different aspect - ebooks, using library resources, streaming movies and TV shows. The schedule for the rest of 2014 is:
The sessions will be held on Wednesdays in the Library's Conference Room on the lower level. Each session will be repeated during the month, once in the morning and once in the evening, so patrons can come to whichever session is most convenient for them.
Registration is required and space is limited - sign up on our events calendar. Contact the Reference Department for more information or if you need help registering at email@example.com or 978-256-5521 x211.Posted in Computer, Library Information, Programs | No Comments »
The program from last year that funded one-on-one computer instruction at the library has been extended, and we're happy to offer this service again! Sessions start on February 19th and will run for about nine months.
Sessions are being scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday mornings (10am and 11am) and evenings (6pm and 7pm) - contact the Reference Desk at 978-256-5521 x211 to schedule an appointment. Any technology topic is fair game - using a computer, downloading ebooks, getting an email account, learning software like Excel, installing software, or even just a quick refresher.
These instructional sessions are made possible through the BTOP program at UMass-Lowell, focused on improving digital literacy.
For more information, contact the Reference Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521 x211.Posted in Computer, Programs | No Comments »
Chelmsford Telemedia records many of the programs held at the Library, for rebroadcast on television. They also provide these programs on DVD to the Library, as well as put them online so they are available anytime.
The DVDs are in our catalog and available in the Library's DVD collection upstairs, and circulate just like regular DVDs.
The videos are in the Exhibits section - just choose what you'd like to watch from the dropdown box. Each video is displayed in the player - such as "The Science of Natural Disasters" with Dr. Chuck Fidler from May 11, 2012:
Thanks to the staff and volunteers of Chelmsford Telemedia for providing this great resource to the community. If you have any questions about Library programs, finding the DVDs, or watching them online, please contact the Reference Desk.
If you have ideas of programs or speakers you'd like to see at the Library, please contact Kathy Cryan-Hicks, Assistant Director of Community Relations & Programs, and email@example.com or 978-256-5521 x109.Posted in Library Information, Programs | No Comments »
