   Wednesday, July 20th, 2011 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Chelmsford TelemediaBack in May, Chelmsford Telemedia added a new feature to their website - online streaming versions of many of the programs you can see on the local cable station.

These can be accessed by visiting http://chelmsfordtv.org/streaming.php in your web browser. On the right, videos are grouped into categories:

  • Selectmen Meetings
  • School Committee Meetings
  • Planning Board Meetings
  • Government-Miscellaneous
  • Chelmsford Public Schools
  • Public Access Programming
  • Chelmsford Public Library

Cameraman MattTo view a video, click one of the categories and then scroll down the list of available videos and click on the one you'd like to see. There is also a search box at the top of the viewer to find videos by keyword.

In addition to recording various the governmental functions of the Town of Chelmsford, most of the programs held at the Library will be available here online (these are naturally our favorites). So if you missed a program at the library, a Selectmen meeting, one of the many Public Access shows, or just about anything else that happened in Chelmsford, you can watch (or rewatch!) it at your leisure here - for free, any time day or night. DVDs of each program at also available for $10 - contact Chelmsford Telemedia for details.

   Friday, May 23rd, 2008 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Wi-Fi logoDid you know that the library offers wireless access to the internet?

Anyone with a wi-fi-ready laptop computer or other device can get on the internet at the Library using your device and our fast internet connection. Right now, the best signal strength is available on the lower level, and the reference staff is available to help you connect to our wireless network.

More information about our connection and requirements is available on our Laptop Internet Access webpage. We also have a wireless frequently asked question list, including other places around town that offer free wi-fi.

The Library's wi-fi is unsecured, which means you don't need a password or account to log on. It also means that anyone you are sharing the network with could potentially monitor what you're doing online. This is true of many public wireless networks, so it is always a good idea to know about wireless security before you use a public wireless network.

Here are a few online resources to learn more about using wireless networks safely:

If you have questions about the Library's wireless connection, or about using wi-fi connections in general, please contact the Reference Desk.
