LOWELL SUBURBAN 1937/38-1949

MIDDLESEX COUNTY 1882/83-1890

These are available in the microfilm cabinets downstairs in the Reference area. The library also has microfilm holdings of Chelmsford newspapers, the Boston Globe, early Chelmsford Town records, and early Massachusetts records.

If you have any questions or need assistance with using microfilm, please contact the Reference Desk.

Go to a Spinners Game with Discount Library Passes

   Friday, June 22nd, 2012 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Lowell SpinnersThe Lowell Spinners is offering a discount pass program for tickets for their 2012 season!

The pass works like this:

  • Find a game day on the Spinners' schedule you'd like to attend
  • Go to our Museum Pass page and reserve the pass for the same day as your game
    Each pass is good for up to six tickets, and each ticket will cost $3 (this is at least a 50% discount!)
  • On the day of the game, or the day before, pick up the pass at the library's main circulation desk
  • Take the pass to the game to purchase your tickets
    NOTE: the pass does not guarantee admission - the discount will only apply if there are tickets available the Spinners let us know that there will always be tickets available!

Be sure to check the Spinners' schedule - and remember, this pass only works if there still tickets available the day of the game.

We'd like to thank the Lowell Spinners for providing this discount pass program to local libraries!
