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 »

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.Posted in Library Information, Programs, Web Tools | No Comments »
