To celebrate National Library Week, the library is launching "Your Library Anytime" - http://www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/anytime - to highlight all of the library services and resources that are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Whether you're trying to finish your homework the night before it's due, sitting on a beach and want to download an ebook, riding the train to work and feel like reading a magazine, or missed last week's speaker on your favorite topic - the library can help, even after our doors are closed.
Your Library Anytime is divided up into general sections, with links to specific resources - both library tools and free online resources - which are all available 24/7. And we'll be adding more links as we grow, so we'd love to hear your feedback - let us know what you'd like the library to offer! Send your comments to Becky Herrmann, Library Director, firstname.lastname@example.org - or better yet, go to http://www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/anytime and choose one of the other ways to connect with us, 24/7.Posted in Library Information, Resources, Web Tools | No Comments »
The library is now offering easy access to the latest articles in popular magazines!
For years patrons have had access to these same magazines, but they've been sort of buried in our subscription databases. Now, there's an "Online Newsstand" that displays magazine covers that lets you click right into that magazine.
This is available both on our main website and also on our mobile website - that way, you can have easy access to read magazines while you're on the go. New articles are added as the magazine is published, and you can also scroll to see past issues. There will also be more magazines added soon, too!
If you have any questions about accessing these magazines or any of our databases, please contact the Reference Desk.Posted in Current News, Reference, Resources | No Comments »
To see this list, just click the New Book Alerts button on our homepage. Once there, you can use the menus on the left to see just DVDs, or just Childrens books, etc.
Along the top, you can click to see previous weeks, or see more than one week at a time. These new items lists just started last week, so it'll take a few weeks to build up.
Speaking of book lists, did you know the library has a Reading Room webpage devoted to provided reading suggestions? From there you can find best seller lists and lists of award winners, "read-a-likes" similar to your favorite books and authors, staff picks, and also a list of places from which to download ebooks.
And if you'd like to have reading suggestions delivered to you automatically, via email or RSS feed, check out our Electronic Signups page. You can sign up to receive notifications of new items, best sellers, library events, our Twitter feed and more!
If you have any questions about these options, please contact the Reference Desk.Posted in Library Information, Reading Room, Resources | No Comments »
Both chargers were funding by a grant from the Department of Energy Resources, and Chelmsford was one of 25 Massachusetts towns to earn the grant to install chargers.
The grant also covers the expense of charging electric cars for the first two years - so anyone charging up their electric car and do so for free. You can read about the chargers in the Chelmsford Independent, Chelmsford Patch, and the Lowell Sun.Library Information | No Comments »
In our continued effort to make information at the library - whether in the form of books, movies, or anything else - easy to find, library staff spent last Thursday morning shifting, merging, weeding, and generally reviewing some of our collections. Here's the major highlights of what moved and where, and please ask library staff if you have any questions:
If you have any trouble finding anything, or any questions about these moves, please ask any library staff person.Posted in Books, Library Information | No Comments »
