With the start of the new year, the Chelmsford Library is also launching a new events calendar!
The new calendar is easier to read, will have more events and activities on it, and offers new features for patrons. These include:
The new calendar also has a new web address: http://calendar.chelmsfordlibrary.org. Be sure to bookmark it, or subscribe to an RSS feed, to keep up to date with what is going on at the library.
Another feature of this calendar is that is allows library events to automatically show up on the Chelmsford Community Calendar, hosted by Chelmsford Telemedia. Bookmarking the Community Calendar lets you see what's going on around town.
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.Posted in Library Information, Programs, Web Tools | No Comments »
Last night's session with Loreen Liberty, of TLM Studios, focused on the technical aspects of a digital camera: how to set resolution, compression, what memory card and batteries, to use, etc. Next week, on March 19th, Loreen will switch from the technical to the creative aspects of photographs - choosing subjects, balancing foreground and background, paying attention to color and lighting, and much more.
The third and final workshop, on April 2nd, will give one example of what can be done with the pictures you take with your digital camera. Brian Herzog of the Chelmsford Library will demonstrate how the photo sharing website flickr can be used to store, organize and share photographs.

On Monday, Nov. 5th, Richard Russo will be reading from his new book, Bridge of Sighs, and answering questions about his other books, including Chelmsford's One Book, Empire Falls. Following the reading and Q&A session, Richard Russo will be available for book signings.
Due to an overwhelming response, there has been a change in venue and time!
The program will now be held at the McCarthy Middle School auditorium, at 7:30pm. The auditorium holds almost 600 people, so seating shouldn't be an issue, even if you don't already have a ticket.
