Starting in September, the library will be offering a new series of small group instruction classes.
The topic will always be technology, but each month will cover a different aspect - ebooks, using library resources, streaming movies and TV shows. The schedule for the rest of 2014 is:
The sessions will be held on Wednesdays in the Library's Conference Room on the lower level. Each session will be repeated during the month, once in the morning and once in the evening, so patrons can come to whichever session is most convenient for them.
Registration is required and space is limited - sign up on our events calendar. Contact the Reference Department for more information or if you need help registering at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521 x211.Posted in Computer, Library Information, Programs | No Comments »
The last scheduled donation drop-off day for the book sale is Saturday, August 30th, from 9am-Noon. Volunteers will be at the Yellow House (next door to the library) and available to help unload cars.
The absolute last day for donations is Friday, September 12th.
This is because the Yellow House has been sold and will be moved, and we'll have nowhere to store donations for awhile. So please, if you can't get the donations to the library by September 12th, hold onto them at home until we're able to accept donations again.
2014 Book Sale schedule:
The sale will take place in the gym behind the Town Office building, 50 Billerica Road, Chelmsford [see a map].
Run by the Chelmsford Friends of the Library, the book sale is a significant source of funding for library programming, museum passes, and many extras for Chelmsford patrons – the 2013 Book Sale raised over $25,000!

Stop by the Readers Advisory Desk in the library (across from the main desk) to get suggestions for what to read next. If you can't make it into the library, use our online Reading Recommendations Form to give us some information about your reading tastes, and we'll provide you with a list of books we think you'll enjoy.
If you prefer the self-serve approach, our Reading Room webpage has several reading lists and other tools to discover new titles and authors.
Please contact Christine Sharbrough, Head of Readers Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521 x210, if you have any questions about these tools or books in general.Posted in Books, Library Information, Resources | No Comments »
