The Chelmsford Library is now on Instagram!

   Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

CPLinstagramTo celebrate National Library Week, April 12 – 18, the Library is launching an Instagram account. You can find us at https://instagram.com/chelmsfordlibraryma/

Instagram is great for sharing quick photos, so we wanted to show off "24 hours in the library," with one photo every hour. (Since, unfortunately, we're not open 'round the clock, those 24 hours will be spread over the entire week.) We're going to be capturing slices of life in the library, our collections, our patrons - and maybe you!

Here's a sample of some photos so far:

Check us out at https://instagram.com/chelmsfordlibraryma/, follow us, share our photos, and comment to let us know what you think. And, be sure to tag your own photos #chelmsfordma so we can follow you too!

   Monday, May 6th, 2013 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Chelmsford Water District Customer Confidence Report 2012The Chelmsford Water District recently published their Annual Customer Confidence Report for 2012, and it is available online as a PDF.

Where Does My Water Come From?

The Chelmsford Water District customers are fortunate because we enjoy an abundant water supply from 19 sources. The Chelmsford Water District draws water from the Merrimack and Concord river basins. Our reservoirs hold one of the state’s largest capacities: 15 million gallons of water. Combined, our facilities provide roughly 1 billion gallons of clean drinking water each year.

The online version of the report is available on their website [pdf]. If you'd like a printed version, copies are available at the library or you can request one by contacting tmelanson@chelmsfordwater.com or 978-256-2381.
