Book sale photoThank you to everyone who volunteered or shopped in the 2011 Friends of the Chelmsford Library Book Sale - you helped make it another successful year!

This year the sale raised almost $30,000!

This money is used by the Friends of the Library to fund library programs and speakers, our museum passes, electronic resources, and much more.

Dates for donation drop-offs for next year's sale will be posted soon. Thank you again for all your support!

2011 Winterfest Contest WinnersThe winning photographs from the Winterfest 2011 photo contest are currently on display on the lower level of the library. We also uploaded these photographs to the library’s flickr account for an online gallery, but seeing them in person with their ribbons is much more impressive.

The winners in each category are listed below, and are also linked to the online photographs.




The photo contest is a part of every Winterfest, so be sure to carry your camera with you and submit your best shots next year!

Nominate Your Choice For One Book Chelmsford 2011

   Tuesday, August 24th, 2010 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

One Book Chelmsford logoThe Library had a great time with Dennis Lehane's Shutter Island for 2010's One Book Chelmsford, and we hope you did, too!

Now, once again we're asking for your help in choosing the next One Book Chelmsford, for 2011. Think about all the books you've read, or the books you'd like to read, and let us know which titles you'd like selected for the Town to read in 2011.

The next time you're in the library, give your nomination suggestion to any staff member. Or, you can submit your nomination online by clicking the "Submit Your Nomination" link on our homepage or using the One Book Nomination Form.

The One Book Committee will review all the suggestions and narrow them down to three final choices. Then on Election Day in November, the entire Town will vote for which of those three they'd like to be One Book Chelmsford 2011.
