Since the Dutton House next door to the library could not be sold to be moved, the Selectmen have approved its demolition. The work of clearing the building for demolition is to begin immediately, which also means that the house can no longer be used for book sale storage.
Therefore, starting on Tuesday, January 20th, 2015, the library cannot accept any book donations until the Dutton House is replaced with a new storage building. Plans for a storage building, additional parking, and more green space will be finalized by the Spring. We'll update everyone when the library will be able to once again happily accept donations from our patrons.
We apologize for this interruption in accept donations, because the library truly appreciates the generosity and support of the Chelmsford community.Posted in Current News, Friends of the Library, Library Information | No Comments »
Last year, Toys for Tots collected over 55,000 toys for kids in the area and we are hoping to exceed that number this year.
Toys can be dropped off to the box in front of the Fire Prevention office, Chelmsford Town Hall, Room LLO3. The last day for the collection will be Friday December 13,2013 - anything you are able to contribute, is very much appreciated.
For more information please contact:
More information about donating to the Toys for Tots program is available on their website.Posted in Town of Chelmsford | No Comments »
The majority of the books sold at the sale are books donated to the Library and the Friends. To make sure each book sale offers as many titles as possible, the Friends have scheduled drop-off days throughout the year. The full schedule is available on their website, and the summer dates are listed below:
The drop-off location is the Dutton House (the yellow house next to the main library). On these scheduled drop-off days, volunteers are available to help unload cars and handle large donations.
If you are unable to make one of the scheduled drop-offs, you can use the new Book Sale Donation box, located on the edge of the parking lot between the Library and the Dutton House. Or, if you are emptying a house or an estate and would like to donate a large collection of books, please contact the Friends directly to make special arrangements.Posted in Books, Friends of the Library | No Comments »
