At a special Town Meeting on Aug 16th, town reps voted to adopt new taxes in order to help offset the Town's budget shortfall. Unfortunately, this didn't close the budget gap entirely, so Town Departments, including the Library, are making an additional 2% cut to their operating budgets effective September 1, 2009.
What This Means for the Library
These changes will take effect September 1st. The last Monday MacKay will be open (until our budget situation improves) will be August 31, 2009.
The Chelmsford Library is always trying to balance the needs and expectations of our patrons with the resources we have available to us. Since these changes affect all of us, we'd like to hear what you think. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact at Becky Herrmann, Library Directory, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521 x101.Posted in Library Information | 2 Comments »
Chelmsford's 2009 Summer Reading program is here!
This year's program has been tailored to fit with the 2009 One Book Chelmsford, Three Cups of Tea and author Greg Mortenson's picture book edition, Listen to the Wind. There are many aspects to this year's Summer Reading program, but the two main themes are collecting Pennies for Peace and outdoor adventures.
For reading logs, hiking passbooks, book suggestions and links to trail maps of Chelmsford, visit the Summer Reading webpage or stop by the Children's Room.Posted in Books, Kids, One Book, Reading Room | No Comments »

Chelmsford 2009 Winterfest was a big hit, and the photography contest was particularly successful. Over 140 photos were submitted - more than ever before - and some of them are incredible.
The winning photos in each category are currently on display on the lower level of the Chelmsford Library. They will remain on display until the end of March, so if you didn't get to see them at the Chelmsford Senior Center during Winterfest, you still have time.
The winners in each category are:
After the end of March, the winning photographers can pick up their photos at the Library. All other photographs entered into the Winterfest contest can also be picked up at the Library any time before the end of March.Posted in Events | No Comments »
