The Chelmsford Library is participating in a pilot project to help increase the number of ebooks Massachusetts residents can access through their library. This initiative is funded by the state and part of the FY15 MBLC Legislative Agenda
The Massachusetts Library System (MLS) created this pilot project to explore the potential of purchasing ebooks from a variety of sources, and make them all available in one place. The pilot started with two vendors (Baker & Taylor and Bibliolabs), and will soon add a third, Ebook Library (EBL). This collections increases the number of ebooks available to Chelmsford residents by thousands of titles.

To help celebrate Chelmsford Winterfest 2014, the library installed a new StoryWalk at Sunny Meadow.
This time, the StoryWalk is the entire story of The Emperor Lays an Egg, by Brenda Z. Guiberson. All of the pages have been laminated and placed on sign posts along the trail, so kids and adults alike can read the story as they hike the trail.
Even if you didn't make it to Sunny Meadow during Winterfest, don't worry - the StoryWalk will be up for the next few months, so enjoy it whenever you can (and however many times you like!).
This StoryWalk is located at Sunny Meadow Community Garden, at the end of Robin Hill Road near Route 27/Kate's Corner in South Chelmsford.
Thank you for the Friends of the Library for funding our StoryWalk project, and to the COSS volunteers for their work in the field. Also, thanks to Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT, for coming up with the original StoryWalk idea!
