The Chelmsford Library has discount passes to 17 different area museums, parks, zoos and other attractions. If you're looking for something to do this weekend or this summer, these passes offer a great way to explore the area economically.

All of the passes available through the Library are paid for by the Friends of the Chelmsford Library group. As such, they are available to all Chelmsford residents and any member of the Friends, regardless of residency. If you don't live in Chelmsford but would like to use our passes, you can join the Friends group to get access.

To view or reserve a pass, first click on the Museum Passes link from our homepage. From there, available passes are viewable By Date or By Museum, and you drill down to the right pass on the right day just by clicking.

To request a pass, click the green "Request Pass" button and log in your your library card number and your PIN (usually, the last four digits of your telephone number). When requesting, you can choose to be receive a reminder email 24 or 48 hours before your reservation. Make sure you see the reservation confirmation screen before ending the process.

Reserved passes can be picked up in person at the Circulation Desk the day before or the day of the reservation, using the library card they were reserved under.

For questions about making or canceling a reservation, or about the museums themselves, please contact the Reference Desk.

New Additions to Forms on File

   Thursday, July 26th, 2007 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Forms on File, one of the Library's new databases, has just announced they have added a significant amount of new content.

This resource, which can be used to important forms ranging from personal, business, legal, real estate, etc., has been updated to reflect recent changes in government agency forms and cover everything from affidavits to employee evaluations and applications for Social Security benefits.

New and updated forms include:

  • Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) 2007-2008: For students. Used by virtually all two- and four-year colleges, universities, and career schools for the awarding of federal student aid and most state and college aid.
  • Report of International Transportation of Currency or Monetary Instruments: For patrons departing or entering the United States, or patrons shipping, mailing, or receiving currency or monetary instruments.
  • Financing Eligibility Statement—"Economic Disadvantage": For small business owners. Used by goverment agencies in order to determine patrons' personal eligibility for their businesses to receive financing under Section 301(d) of the Small Business Investment Act.

To access these forms, log in from the Library's Databases webpage, or contact the Reference Desk for help.

Updated Career Guidance Resource

   Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Our career guidance database has a new look! The changes to the database include a fresh and cleaner look, better search capabilities, a Career Opportunity News newsletter, and a great deal more content.

The Library subscribes to Ferguson's Career Guidance Center, from Facts on File, which is a resource offering information on jobs, careers, scholarships, industries, work skills, resumes & cover letters, and more. Patrons looking to find a job, change careers or just improve their job qualifications, can use this database to find out what skills different jobs require, and then get tips on how to obtain those skills.

To log in and start using this information, go to the Career Guidance listing of our database page, and either click on "In Library" (if you're in the library), or if you're at home, enter your library card number and click the Login button.

For assistance with this or any of the library's other databases, please contact the Reference Desk.
