New Museum Pass: Einstein's Workshop

   Tuesday, July 8th, 2014 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

einsteinsworkshopChelmsford patrons have access to a new museum pass through the Library: Einstein's Workshop, in Burlington.

Einstein's Workshop offers many science and technology classes, and has a great drop-in space. The Library's pass offers free admission during drop in hours and admits up to 2 children.

Drop-in hours vary, so check our museum pass website for more information, and to reserve a pass. You can also visit Einstein's Workshop's website at http://www.einsteinsworkshop.com for more information on their activities.

In other museum pass-related news, the library is running a trial for the summer to make our passes more accessible. We're going to waive our regular pass limits for any day-of-use pass that isn't already reserved that day. So, if you already have something booked, and another museum you'd like to visit is also available on that day, you can now borrow both of them.

At the end of the summer we'll evaluate how the trial went and decide how to move forward. If you have any questions or suggestions about museum passes, please contact the Reference Desk at askus@mvlc.org or 978-256-5521 x211.

Now You Can Borrow A Telescope From The Library

   Friday, May 30th, 2014 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

telescopeThanks to a very generous recent donation, Chelmsford now has two telescopes available at the library!

The telescopes (one at the Main Library and one at the MacKay Branch) can be checked out just like a book or DVD, so you can use it at home to look at the stars. They are small but powerful - easy to take home with a built-in carry handle, but strong enough provide views of craters on the moon or the rings of Saturn.

You can reserve the telescopes through our catalog, and then check it out for one week. Patrons must be 18 or older to check one out, and a picture ID is also required. The telescopes each come with an operation manual, a starguide, and a headlamp.

The telescope at the Main Library is a gift in memory of Eugene Schueller, by Rich and Sue Schueller. MacKay's telescope is a gift from Bruce and Donna Berger.

Explore the night sky with these wonderful additions to the library collection! Contact either the main desk at 978-256-5521 or the MacKay Branch, x6, for more information.
