I [heart] SundaysSunday hours at the main library begin this weekend, October 20, 2013, and continue until the weekend prior to Memorial Day weekend, May 18, 2014. Sunday hours will be 1:00 - 5:00 PM, and all regular library services and resources will be available during Sunday hours.

And this Sunday, October 20th, the Merrimack Valley Artisans will present "How Artists Create" - MVA members will demonstrate their art making process from 1:00 p.m. until 4:45 p.m. in the McCarthy Meeting Room.

Let us know what you think about Sunday Hours, so we can best allocate the library's budget to serve Chelmsford patrons.

Upcoming Library Hours and Services Interruptions

   Tuesday, December 18th, 2012 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

The end of December 2012 and the beginning of January 2013 will see a few changes to the library - as well as a few interruptions in our day-to-day services.

Holiday Hours
The following changes affect Library hours for the Christmas and New Year's holidays:

         Christmas Eve Eve Sunday, December 23rd
Christmas Eve Monday, December 24th
Christmas Day Tuesday, December 25th

New Year's Eve Monday, December 31st closing at 1 p.m.
New Year's Day Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

Besides the days and times listed above, the library will be open regular hours - including 1 PM - 5 PM on Sundays!

No Internet Access on Wednesday, Dec 26
On Dec. 26th, the Town will be switching to a new and faster internet provider.

This means we will have a day without internet access at the library. You will still be able to check books out and use the catalog from home. We hope to have internet access restored by Thursday.

Library Closed Mornings Jan 7 - Jan 11th
The main library will be doing some building upgrades on the ceiling in the main lobby the second week of January 2013. Because of the construction, there will be a delayed opening that week. The main library will not open to the public until 2:30 p.m. from Monday, Jan. 7th through Friday, Jan. 11th

However, the MacKay Branch Library at 43 Newfield St. in North Chelmsford will be open from 9:30 a.m.—2:00 p.m. daily (in addition to the branch’s regular hours).

The Library Is Open on Sundays Again!

   Thursday, October 11th, 2012 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

I [heart] SundaysAt the town meeting in April, town meeting representatives voted to approve the library budget - which included restoration of Sunday hours at the main library from October to May.

Sunday hours begin this weekend, October 14, 2012, and continue until the weekend prior to Memorial Day weekend, May 19, 2013. Sunday hours will be 1:00 - 5:00 PM.

The library hasn't been open on Sundays since 2007, due to tightened budgets. We're happy to have this funding restored, so the library is able to serve patrons at a time that is convenient for many people.

If you're out and about on Sunday, stop in!
